Note: This post was updated March 20 at 10:53 a.m. to clarify that individual political subdivisions must still take action to postpone elections.

Travis County has postponed its May 2 elections following Gov. Greg Abbott's proclamation that elections scheduled for that day could be postponed to Nov. 3 to observe social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Travis County Clerk's Office announced in a March 19 press release that it will not conduct a May 2 election "for any political subdivision" and recommended other political subdivisions postpone their elections until Nov. 3 as well.

Travis County's decision will affect city elections in Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Round Rock and West Lake Hills, where the county clerk will not conduct elections. A number of school board candidate and bond elections will also be affected, including for Eanes ISD, Dripping Springs ISD, Hays County Consolidated ISD, Lago Vista ISD and Pflugerville ISD. Elections for Shady Hollow Municipal Utility District and Ranch at Cypress Creek Municipal Utility District No. 1 will be affected as well, per the county clerk's office.

Affected political subdivisions may still have to individually take action to postpone elections.
