Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[4]

Method of board member selection

The Alvin Board of Trustees consists of seven members elected to three-year terms. There was no primary election and a general election took place on May 10, 2014. Three seats will be on the ballot in May 2015 and two seats will be up for election in May 2016.[5]
