Action to move election will have to be taken by Board of Aldermen.
In light of an advisory email from the Elections Division of the Texas Secretary of State, Salado aldermen will likely revisit their split-decision vote on March 23 to continue to hold the Village general election on May 2. While the Village has not formally posted anything about a meeting to move the election date, aldermen were informed via text from the Village Administrator at 1:23 p.m. March 25 that an Emergency Meeting of the Board of Aldermen will be held at 9 a.m. March 26 “to consider moving May election to Nov, in light of correspondence from the Secretary of State.”
Despite the Village voting on March 23 to keep the May 2 election date, Mayor Skip Blancett took to social media March 24 to tell voters “an order has been given for 3 November.”
Two hours after County Judge David Blackburn issued a “stay at home” directive, Village of Salado aldermen voted to defeat a motion by alderman Frank Coachman to move the Village election from May 2 to November 3. The motion received a second from John Cole following a brief discussion of the ramifications of moving the election from the May uniform election date to the November uniform election date. Across town, Salado ISD Trustees voted unanimously to move the election to November 3.[Read more…] about Village election will stay in May but school moves to November
