  • district: House district number. If the district number is hyphenated, put only the first part in the district parameter. Example: For District 33-F, use 33.
    • subdistrict: For compatibility with older district numbering schemes. If the district number is hyphenated, put the second part in the subdistrict parameter. Example: For District 33-F, use F
  • hometown: Optional. Helpful, if known, since Texas House district numbers and numbering systems have often changed dramatically. The template will create the wikilink for the town.
  • before: previous officeholder
  • after succeeding officeholder. If omitted, template will insert Incumbent
  • start: for incumbent, beginning date
  • years: date range. For consistency with other succession templates use YEAR–YEAR (no spaces around an en dash).
  • town_note_marker: a marker for noting a change in hometown. (See example below.)
