Local elections postponed

Post Ad – Top

Many local elections scheduled for May 2 have been postponed until November because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last week, Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation allowing local entities to postpone their elections that were scheduled for May until the Nov. 3 General Election. Flower Mound was the first local entity to do so, and many more in the area are making the same choice.

The following entities have postponed their elections until the Nov. 3 General Election:

Argyle

The town of Argyle has three expiring Town Council seats up for election and two candidates for each:

  • Place 1: Bryan Livingston (i), Tom Irwin
  • Place 3: Sherri Myers (i), Richard Spies
  • Place 5: Rick Bradford, CB Standridge

The town had also called a special election for residents to consider a proposed Municipal Development District, which could extend its sales tax rate outside the town border to also include its Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction.

Bartonville

Bartonville voters will choose whether to renew allocation of a portion of the town’s sales tax to street maintenance, which goes up for vote every four years.
