On March 18, Governor Abbott issued a proclamation suspending provisions of the Texas Election Code to allow political subdivisions to postpone their 2020 local elections. This means local governments now have the ability to postpone their May 2, 2020 elections until November 3, 2020.
As a result of Governor Abbott's proclamation, at the Board of Trustees meeting on March 23, the Board voted to postpone the May election until November 3 due to the current COVID-19 crisis. The May election consisted of the $35.1 bond proposal as well as the Board of Trustees election.
