JANUARY 29, 2022 SPECIAL ELECTION

 

A special election was called by the Bastrop City Council at the December 14th Council Meeting. The special election is necessary due to Lyle Nelson resigning from Place 3 with 1 year and 6 months left in his term. State law requires his replacement to be elected rather than appointed. Below are dates approved by Council.
