Governor Abbott issued a Proclamation today allowing local governments the option of postponing the May 2, 2020 elections until November 3rd.
“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.”
