On February 11, 2020, City Council approved Resolution No. 20-005, ordering the May 2, 2020 General Election for the purposes of electing City Council for Place 1 and Place 6.  

In response to public health and safety concerns related to the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) infectious disease outbreak, the Governor of the State of Texas issued a proclamation on March 18, 2020 authorizing political subdivisions, such as the City, that would otherwise hold elections on May 2, 2020, to move their general and special elections for 2020 to the next uniform election date, occurring on November 3, 2020. 

On March 23, 2020, Council passed Resolution No. 20-016, to postpone the election to November 3, 2020, or a date that may be specified as an alternative in a future order issued by the Governor.  

On June 16, 2020, Council approved Resolution No. 20-025, provide updates necessary to reflect the November 3, 2020 early voting and election dates. The remainder of the original Resolution No. 20-005 will remain in effect.

On August 18, 2020, Council approved Resolution No. 20-032, amending Resolution No. 20-025 for the November 3, 2020 General Election per Governor Abbott's extension of the early voting dates.

Any candidate who filed for the May 2, 2020 General Election will remain valid, and the filing period will not be reopened for the new November 3, 2020 election date.
