The 2018 general election will be held on Tuesday, November 6, with early voting running Monday, October 22 through Friday, Nov. 2. These are the midterms, so voters should anticipate a lengthy ballot, with national, statewide, countywide, and city races all up for grabs – essentially the general elections for each of the races Travis County residents voted on in March (and in the run-offs in May), plus those for Mayor and five districts on City Council – plus the boards of trustees for both Austin Community College and the Austin Independent School District. Here's the final Council candidate list, with asterisks next to incumbents.
