The last City Council election, a case in point, demonstrated that just a handful of votes can make a difference in who speaks for you on City Council. Such a slight difference might easily tilt the direction of your City government and your City. As with state and national politics, the larger the voter turnout, the more likely the results will reflect the larger electorate and the less likely the results can be dominated by special interest, a hidden agenda or a “good ole boy” network. A strong representative government requires your vote.
WHERE? Voting is on the lower level of the Bastrop County Courthouse Annex (the buff colored brick building at 804 Pecan, immediately adjacent to and east of the old courthouse in downtown Bastrop).
WHEN? That’s your call—whenever voting opportunity best fits with your schedule:
