The Williamson County Elections Department has recommended that local May 2 elections within the county be postponed, citing Gov. Abbott's March 18 proclamation allowing local May elections to take place in November.

In a March 18 email obtained by Community Impact Newspaper, Williamson County Elections Administrator Chris Davis said the department will not be holding any local entities in May and asked entities to postpone their elections until the Nov. 3 election. If the entity chooses to continue with a May election, they will have to host the election themselves.


"Please be advised that our office will not be conducting a May 2, 2020 election for any political subdivision. A political subdivision that opts not to postpone their election to November 3, 2020 will be responsible for administrating the elections themselves," the email read.
