After a year of primary elections, primary runoffs, a special election and a general election with historically high turnout, Austin voters will be making their final decisions of 2020 on Dec. 15 when they elect two Austin City Council members and two trustees on Austin ISD's board in runoff elections.
Council Members Jimmy Flannigan and Alison Alter are looking to retain their seats on the dais in District 6 and District 10, respectively, against challengers Mackenzie Kelly and Jennifer Virden.
No incumbent AISD board members ran for re-election in 2020. Noelita Lugo faces Leticia Moreno Caballero for the Place 8 seat, which is an at-large position elected by voters throughout the entire district. In District 5, which covers portions of Central and Southwest Austin, Lynn Boswell faces Jennifer Littlefield.
Travis County has 65 total polling places open: 63 in Austin, one in Manchaca on FM 1626 and one in Del Valle. You can find the list of those polling locations below, courtesy of the Travis County clerk's website.
Williamson County also has four polling locations open Dec. 15 in Austin. Parts of Austin City Council District 6 are located within Williamson County. If Austin voters who reside within Williamson County find themselves in Georgetown on Dec. 15, they can also cast ballots at Georgetown City Hall or First Baptist Church.
Voters do not have to vote at their local precinct or stay within the boundaries of their Austin City Council or Austin ISD district. However, they do have to stay within their home county. In both counties, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
