Due to public health and safety arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, on March 18, 2020, the Governor of the State of Texas, issued the following proclamation:
    “A proclamation suspending Sections 41.0052(a) and (b) of the Texas Election Code and Section 49.103 of the Texas Water Code to the extent necessary to allow political subdivisions that would otherwise hold elections on May 2, 2020, to move their general and special elections for 2020 only to the next uniform election date, occurring on November 3, 2020, without otherwise adjusting the term of office, and suspending Sections 31.093 and 42.0621(c) of the Texas Election Code to the extent necessary to require all county election officers, if requested by an affected political subdivision, to enter into a contract to furnish election services with any political subdivision who postponed their election to November 3, 2020, under the authority of this proclamation.”

During a video conferencing meeting held on Monday, March 23, 2020, the Council voted to postpone the May 2, 2020, General and City Bond Elections to November 3, 2020, or to an earlier option as specified by Governor Greg Abbott.
