During the 2015 INC election, concerns were raised regarding the process of the election.

In addition to Referred Questions 2A-2G authorizing up to $937 million of General Obligation Bond sales to finance capital projects across the city, voters will decide:
The election of four members of the DPS Board of Education – 1 At-Large, plus Districts 2, 3 and 4
Referred Question 2H – a bill to change the name of the Department of Environmental Health to the Department of Public Health & Environment (to match the state) and increase its board membership from 5 to 9 members
