Burleson Postpones General Election

On March 30, 2020 Burleson City Council approved Resolution CSO#1317-03-2020 postponing the May 2, 2020 General Election for the offices of Mayor, Councilmember Place 2, Councilmember Place 4, and Councilmember Place 6 to the uniform election date of November 3, 2020. The City Council cited public health and safety concerns related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as the reason for the move, as well as a recent proclamation by Governor Greg Abbott authorizing political subdivisions that would otherwise hold elections on May 2, 2020 to move their general elections to November 3, 2020. 

By postponing the election date, the City is preserving all candidate filings and ballot order actions that have already taken place.  This postponement does not have the effect of reopening candidate filings.   

All applications for ballots by mail that were filed for the May 2, 2020 Election that are marked annual remain valid for the November 3, 2020 election. All single use applications for ballots by mail that were submitted for the May 2, 2020 Election for reasons of age or disability remain valid for the November 3, 2020 election. Applications for early voting by mail  for the November 3, 2020 election may be delivered to the Early Voting Clerk at 141 W. Renfro, Burleson, Texas, Fax: 817-426-9374, email: elections@burlesontx.com to be received not later than the close of business on October 23, 2020.   

Early Voting by personal appearance for the November 3, 2020 election shall be conducted beginning on October 19, 2020, and continuing through October 30, 2020.  The exact times and locations for early voting will be reflected in a revision to the original election order that will go before City Council at a later date. Individuals seeking to vote in the November 3, 2020 election must register to vote by October 5, 2020. 

The elections shall be held in accordance with the Constitution of the State of Texas and the Code, and all resident qualified voters of the City shall be eligible to vote at the election.
