3 — Seats that will be decided on the San Marcos City Council: mayor (Ruben Becerra vs. John Thomaides) and two City Council members (Saul Gonzales vs. Shane Scott in Place 2; Jason Dalton Montgomery vs. Ed Mihalkanin in Place 3).

2 — Board members who will be picked for Austin Community College (Michael J. Lewis vs. Sean Hassan in Place 4; Guadalupe “Lupe” Sosa vs. Julie Ann Nitsch for Place 9) by voters in parts of Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop and Lee counties.
