As Texans begin early voting, Pflugerville voters will be tasked with deciding on which city council and school board candidates to vote for as well as whether to pass a three-proposition bond package. Texas' early voting runs from Oct. 13-30 with Election Day scheduled for Nov. 3.
Bond projects were selected by members of the city's citizens bond committee in February ahead of the then-scheduled May election.
Following the postponement of the May election due to the coronavirus pandemic, Pflugerville City Council formally voted Aug. 11 to include the roadway, parks and recreation center projects detailed here on the November ballot. Voters can choose to support all, none or some of the propositions listed below.
