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 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[4]

The Comal 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]
