On Nov. 5, Travis County residents will vote on 10 Texas constitutional changes and local referendums from the counties and cities in which they live. You must register no later than Oct. 7 to vote in the election.
The election includes petition drive referendums in Austin, city council elections in Pflugerville, Jonestown, Sunset Valley Lago Visa and Mustang Ridge, and school district bond elections for Manor, Coupland and Del Valle. Voters also will decide a school board election in Lago Vista; library district elections in Wells Branch, Lake Travis and Westbank; Municipal Utility District (MUD) bond elections in Wilbarger, Brickston, West Travis County, Municipal Management District No. 1 and the Point Venture Water Control and Improvement District. Establishing a Southwest Travis County Groundwater Conservation District along with a board of directors and adopting a sales tax for Bastrop and Travis Counties Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 1 also are on the ballot.
“Nationally, everyone is focused on the 2020 Presidential Election, but these local elections can have the most impact on your day-to-day life and pocketbook,” said Bruce Elfant, the Travis County voter registrar and tax assessor-collector. “This is a great time to register to vote, check the accuracy of your voter registration information and change your address if you moved to a new residence in the county since the last election.”
Sept. 24 is National Voter Registration Day and Travis County plans to have voter registration tables across the county. You can look for volunteer deputy registrars at our universities and colleges, select JuiceLand stores, Joe’s Bakery, the five tax office branches and many other locations.
