Election Day Results

The results for Election Day in Williamson County can be found on our Elections website

Williamson County Elections unofficial results include all 59 Election Day Vote Centers reporting. Not included is one iVotronic machine used during one day of early voting which had a mechanical issue. The votes on the malfunctioning iVotronic machine have been recovered. A petition will be filed to seek an order allowing the 114 votes on the malfunctioning iVotronic machine to be counted as part of the election night results. It is our hope to obtain the order this week so that they can be applied before the vote is canvassed on November 20, 2018.

Monday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Sign Up at WarnCentralTexas.org for Emergency Notifications

The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is upgrading the regional notification system that powers WarnCentralTexas.org to bring residents emergency and public safety warnings they need to protect their families, properties and selves. As part of the upgrade, CAPCOG recommends that previously self-registered participants update their notification information by using the link inside an email sent through the new Everbridge system. Residents who haven’t registered to receive emergency warnings at WarnCentralTexas.org should do so. It is important to note newer cellphone models receive federal notifications, such as Amber Alerts. WarnCentralTexas.org is a separate system and a critical tool for local first responders to reach the affected public during an emergency.
