Brazoria County decided March 24 to move all elections to Nov. 3. The decision comes the night after Pearland City Council voted to move its election to November.
Originally the county had left it in the hands of the individual entities to decide whether they would move their elections. With a little over 20 governing bodies within the county, 15 entities chose to keep the election in May, while the remaining entities chose to move to November. However, the county determined that for everyone's safety, all elections need to move.
"It was a hard one, but it's unpredictable," Brazoria County Election Director Lisa Mujica said.
