Directors Election 2020 Notice

THE 2020 DIRECTORS ELECTION HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO NOVEMBER.

Governor Greg Abbott has issued a proclamation to allow political subdivisions to postpone their 2020 local elections.

“I strongly encourage local election officials to take advantage of these waivers and postpone their elections until November,” said Governor Abbott. “Right now, the state’s focus is responding to COVID-19 — including social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. By delaying this election, our local election officials can assist in that effort.”
