10-ONE City of Austin Council Districts

What is 10-ONE?

Under the November 6, 2012, voter-approved charter amendment, Council Members are no longer elected citywide. During the 2014 election, the Mayor was elected citywide, and the other 10 Council Members were elected by residents from geographic districts.

On Nov. 8, 2016, five Council Members who drew two-year terms will be up for election for full four-year terms that begin in January 2017. The remaining Council Members and the Mayor will be up for election in November 2018.
