Austin District One

In 2012, Austin voters approved of the redistricting changes for a new council system with 10 district representatives and a mayor elected city wide. Each district stands to have geographic representation with their very own council member to elect. This will be an opportunity for the City Council to encompass new community advocates and a diverse perspective to the council chambers.

Voters this November 4th will select an entirely new City Council in a manner that historically has never been done in the City of Austin. The people voted and their voices were heard, and will continue to be heard once their district council member is elected.

District 1 is one of the largest districts and is approx. 77,000 in population.

Demographics:

Hispanic, Latino     43.2%
African American     28.2%
