Following months of controversy, Round Rock City Council voted Aug. 13 to hold its delayed local election Nov. 3.

The election, which includes three council seats and seven charter amendments, was originally scheduled for May 2. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Travis County and Williamson County election officials in March pulled their support, which includes supplying voting machines and poll workers, for May elections.


Mayor Craig Morgan is running unopposed. Council Member Tammy Young is not seeking re-election for Place 1, leaving the seat a contest between Michelle Ly and Tina Steiner. Incumbent Will Peckham is running against Frank Ortega for the Place 4 seat.
