Election Workers Needed, Many Polls Combined

Don't forget to vote May 12.

Don't forget: There is an election on Saturday. It might be easy to let it slip your mind, since there are no high-profile races on this ballot. But there is a minor constitutional amendment to be decided, and in Southeast Austin, there is an unexpired Austin Independent School District board term to be filled. Also, many of the smaller communities in Travis County have city council and bond elections.

Probably because of this lack of glamour, Travis County is cutting back on its usual election day mobilization by combining many precincts. Nonetheless, they still need election workers. Please click "continue reading" below to see the county press release.
