  • district: Senate district number.
  • hometown: Optional. Helpful, if known, since Texas Senate 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).
