Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir says these smaller runoff races are just as important as the races at the top of the ticket seen in November.

"City council races and school board trustee elections have more to do with your daily life and your pocketbook than the big-ticket races," she said. "Even if you are a renter, city and school taxes and policy are more likely to affect your bottom line." 

The November election saw more people voting than at any other time in the county's history.

"This could be the start of a new pattern of voting, a new level of participation for all age groups and recognition that all elections have consequences," said DeBeauvoir.
