[ARCHIVED] TC General Election to be Postponed

COVID-19- Election Postponed

TCTX | March 24, 2020: Acting on authorization from Austin, the Town Council has notified Denton and Tarrant County election administrators that Trophy Club intends to postpone the 2020 municipal general election from May 2 to November 3.  Town Council will meet via Zoom for a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday, March 31 at 6:30 PM to ratify this decision and move the election from May to November.  

On March 18, 2020 Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas, sent out a proclamation suspending Sections 41.0052(a) and (b) of the Texas Election Code and Section 49.103 of the Texas Water Code to the extent necessary to allow political subdivisions that would otherwise hold elections on May 2, 2020, to move their general and special elections for 2020 only to the next uniform election date, occurring on November 3, 2020, without otherwise adjusting the term of office, and suspending Sections 31.093 and 42.0621(c) of the Texas Election Code to the extent necessary to require all county election officers, if requested by an affected political subdivision, to enter into a contract to furnish election services with any political subdivision who postponed their election to November 3, 2020, under the authority of this proclamation.

It is a strong recommendation from the Elections office for each political subdivision to postpone the election. The potential serious impact caused by the COVID pandemic and the need to follow guidelines outlined under the many local, county and state disaster declarations is our main concern. The COVID-19 pandemic is still a fluid situation with an unknown outcome. The experts have consistently stated the situation will continue to get worse before improvement is seen. There are numerous unknowns at this time causing an extremely challenging situation for conducting a May 2, 2020 Election. We understand that these are trying times, but the safety of the citizens and poll workers of Denton and Tarrant County are of utmost importance.

To be scheduled for November 3, 2020 would be our Charter Amendment Election and the General Election for the purpose of electing one (1) Mayor, currently held by C. Nick Sanders, one (1) Council Member for Place 1, previously held by Alicia L. Fleury, and one (1) Council Member for Place 2, previously held by Eric Jensen, to the Town Council for three-year terms.
