What’s on the Ballot?
A sample ballot for the next election will be available closer to Election Day.
On your sample ballot, you may see:
Precinct numbers after some of the races
For national, state, and county races, the ballot you receive when you vote is determined by the precinct where you are registered to vote. Some races appear on all Travis County ballots while others only appear on the precinct ballots that are within a specific district. For example, everyone may see the statewide race for governor on their ballot, but only certain residents will see the race for District 47 State Representative.
The phrase: “all or portions of these precincts”
Local entities such as cities and schools have boundaries that do not follow precinct boundaries, so an entity such as the City of Austin or Lake Travis ISD may fall within all of one precinct and a portion of another. Your address will determine if you fall within the boundaries of a local entity.
You may check your voter registration status and find the list of districts and local entities that you are eligible to vote for at www.traviscountytax.org.
