Today is the first day of early voting in the May 7th municipal and constitutional election. In an email call to action this morning, Access Education RRISD reminds voters to get to the polls TWICE before school lets out for the summer. The second election is the primary runoff on May 24th. While Round Rock ISD’s school board elections won’t happen until November, there are 2 statewide constitutional amendments on the May 7th ballot that affect public school funding:
- Proposition 1 would cap property taxes for elderly and disabled homeowners.
- Proposition 2 would increase the school-district homestead exemption for all homeowners.
Non-partisan information in English, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese on the above ballot initiatives is available from the League of Women Voters. Also noted in the call to action are May 7 local elections that may impact RRISD community members, such as the Round Rock City Council election and Prop A in the City of Austin, and voter resources for Travis and Williamson Counties. Early voting runs April 25 – May 3rd, with election day on Sat, May 7th.
