This is how I organize my thoughts when evaluating the right candidate for the job. By highlighting the races where I actually have to make a decision, I can narrow down the research that needs to be done. The League of Women Voters seems to have the best, and maybe only, comprehensive guide in the area. This is the one published in the Statesman: Voters Guide.
In the small sliver where Pflugerville overlaps with Williamson County, the numbers are a little different. There are 13 contested races, 6 uncontested, but still listed races, 8 uncontested offices that don’t even allow for a vote, and the 28 charter amendments. I wasn’t able to highlight anything in this ballot, but it is specific to the Pflugerville portion of Williamson County.
