2011 Travis County Bond Election
Travis County will hold a bond election on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, in conjunction with the scheduled Texas constitutional amendment election.
Why do we have bond elections?
Bond elections allow voters to approve or reject long-term financing for major capital improvement projects in Travis County. Financing projects through bond authorizations allows the County to pay for improvements over 20 years rather than funding the projects with current funds. This method of financing allows for current and future citizens of Travis County to share the cost of improvements that benefit residents County-wide.
What are bonds?
Bonds are sold to borrow money to pay for needed major projects such as improvements to roadways, bridges and park infrastructure. The proposed bonds are general obligation bonds and will be repaid over the next twenty years from property taxes.
How and when do I vote?
Early voting will begin on Monday, October 24th, and end on Friday, November 4, 2011. For additional information about Early Voting or Election Day polling locations and hours, contact the Travis County Clerk’s Election Division at 854-4996 or visit the Elections division website.
