DALLAS (AP) - Who fills the spots on the Texas Board of Education could play a major role in what science textbooks the panel adopts next year for classrooms.

All 15 spots on the Texas Board of Education are up for election on Tuesday because of redistricting.

The board has been marked in recent years not by a partisan divide, but by an ideological one. This includes attempts by social conservatives to draw doubts about the theory of evolution and elevate conservative figures in history lessons. There are four Democrats and 11 Republicans on the board, with six of those Republicans considered part of the social conservative bloc.

In the general election, eight incumbents are vying to retain their spots on the board. Three incumbents face no major party opposition.
