Early voting starts today for the May 10 municipal elections in cities across Central Texas.

Voters in Bee Cave, Manor, New Braunfels, Round Rock and West Lake Hills are choosing mayors and city council members. Several school districts are also holding bond elections. 

Early voting continues through Tuesday, May 6. Election Day for the municipal elections is Saturday, May 10. A valid photo identification is required to vote in person.

Those without an accepted form of ID can obtain an Election Identification Certificate or EIC. They are available at Texas driver license offices during regular business hours and at select locations on Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. A list of EIC mobile station locations is available here.
