This year, City of Austin residents will get a chance to elect (in most cases, re-elect) representatives in Districts 2, 4, 6, 7 and 10.

Only District 2, which comprises much of Southeast Austin, is a wide-open race. Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza, the incumbent, will be leaving her seat to become Travis County attorney after winning a runoff (and the race) in July.

For those who are newcomers to local elections, welcome. If you don’t know which council district you live in, you can find out by typing in your address here. Another note: Council members do not run along party lines.
