The Campaign Trail: April 5, 2024 - October 2025

Williamson County came into being after a vote in the Texas Senate and a local election in 1848. Since then, its communities have been shaped by political trailblazers, community leaders, and engaged voters.  Local democracy affects everyday life, from emergency response and public safety to building parks and supporting businesses.  Large or small, elections offer an exciting and important chance to see ourselves as we are, as we wish to be, and as part of a grand tradition of democracy. The regular rhythm of campaigns and elections serves as the heartbeat of American history.
