Notice of Postponement of the May 2, 2020 General and Special Election

On March 13, 2020, the Governor of the State of Texas certified that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) posts an imminent threat of disaster and, under the authority vested in the Governor by Section 418.014 of the Texas Government Code, declared a state of disaster for all counties in Texas.

On March 18, 2020, the Governor issued a Proclamation suspending certain sections of the Texas Election Code, among others, to allow political subdivisions of the State that would otherwise hold elections on May 2, 2020, to postpone General and Special Elections to the next uniform election date, which will occur on November 3, 2020.

On March 24, 2020, the Town Council of the Town of Argyle at its Regular Scheduled Meeting voted to approve ordinances to postpone the Town’s May 2, 2020, General and Special Election until November 3, 2020.
