Early voting for May 7 election starts Monday
Thursday, April 21, 2022 by Tai Moses
Maybe you’ve heard (or maybe not), the city of Austin has a special called election coming up on Saturday, May 7. There is only a single proposition on the ballot and that is Prop A, which asks: “Shall an initiative ordinance be approved to 1) eliminate enforcement of low-level marijuana offenses; and 2) ban the use of ‘no knock’ warrants by Austin police?” Early voting for the election starts Monday, April 25 and ends May 3. Your last day to request a ballot by mail is Tuesday, April 26. Remember, in order to vote by mail in Texas you have to be out of the country on election day; sick or disabled; 65 or older; or incarcerated but otherwise eligible to vote. (Sorry, we don’t make the rules.) Here’s a list of early voting polling locations in Travis County. Before heading to the polls, brush up on voter identification laws to make sure you have the required ID.
