Entities throughout the state of Texas are preparing to or have already called elections for May 2.

Jan. 15 marked the first day candidates could file to run in a local election.

Cedar Park will have a general election May 2 for the mayor and council places 2, 4 and 6. Currently, Corbin Van Arsdale serves as mayor, Mayor Pro Tem Mel Kirkland serves in Place 2, Mike Guevara serves in Place 4 and Dorian Chavez serves in Place 6.

Leander will not have a council election until 2021, since its council seats are up for election every three years.
