On May 1, Leander voters will elect its mayor and three City Council members for each seat's next three-year term.

Leander City Council officially called the election Jan. 21. Williamson County will host the election.

The mayoral seat and Places 2, 4 and 6, all of which are elected at-large, will be on the May 1 ballot. Applications for the seats opened Jan. 13 and will close Feb. 12 at 5 p.m. Candidate information is available on the Leander city website.
