Hays County Certified Ballot (2020 General Election)
The Texas Secretary of State's Office has released the official ballot for Hays County. By law the ballot order is set with candidates of the party of the Governor listed first. That is a change effective for the first time for the 2020 election. (Previously candidates drew for ballot order.)
The Republican candidate is listed first, followed by the Democratic candidate, then Libertarian, and Green or Independent party candidates after that. Check your location to be sure of which Congressional race you are eligible to vote in. The county is divided between three Congressional Districts. Likewise your location will determine which County Commissioner's precinct you are in as well as your Constable's precinct. All the options are listed but you will only vote for those who serve your location.
Local city and school board races are not listed on the ballot at the link.
Note: This preview ballot shows all races different voters in different locales in the county will be able to vote on. Your ballot will not include races for which you would not be able to vote. Check your Voter Certificate to find out which races you are eligible to vote in.
Hays County Bond Proposition of $75 Million for Parks on the November 2020 Ballot
The county bond proposal for money for parks has caught some voters unawares. The League of Women Voters of Hays County has not researched the issue and has no position on the bond election.
But we have compiled resources so voters can research the topic and cast an informed vote on the matter. See our page of references at this link.
