On May 1st, 8 different propositions will be on the ballot, including Prop B, which has to do with Austin's rules around homelessness.
Did you know there’s an election in May? Austinites will have the chance to vote on 8 different ballot propositions.
Freaking out because this is the first you’re hearing about it? Don’t worry, we’ll be releasing election guides on each of the propositions (A – H) until early voting begins on April 19th.
Plus, in partnership with the Hispanic Austin Leadership (HAL) Program of the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, this year’s guides will be available in both English and Spanish!
PS – Just for clarity’s sake, voting for Prop B means that you want to reinstate Austin’s bans on camping, sitting, and lying down in public areas. Voting against Prop B means that you do not.
