Austin, TX – Grassroots activists will rally for votes at 12:00 noon at the
early voting location, Randall’s at Braker Lane and Research.
This early voting location was the busiest early vote center in Travis County
and is popular with suburban voters likely to vote against Prop 1; in contrast,
downtown area voters, who have dominated voting in typical Austin city
elections, have controlled many tax increase and city bond elections in
notoriously low turnout May elections.
Those downtown voters passed the original 2004 Hospital District tax election when about 93% of voters either didn’t vote, or voted against the Hospital District property tax. Campaign activists affiliated with the Travis County Taxpayers Union, and other groups, will be available for media questions and comments.
