This month, the Georgetown City Council approved the second and final reading of an ordinance to establish new Council Districts for the city. The process to rebalance the population in the city’s seven council districts and create a new Council District map, which is known as redistricting, started in October.
The new Council Districts, as well as other local and state district boundaries, will be effective in January. The Williamson County Elections Department will mail out new voter registration cards in January to all active registered voters with new Georgetown City Council district numbers, new county voting precinct numbers, and other state and local districts that may have changed.
New council districts will be in effect in advance of Janunary 19, 2022, which is the start of the filing period for candidates in Districts 3, 4, and 7 that will be on the May 2022 City Council election ballot.
