AUSTIN (KXAN) — One of the early voting locations in south Austin opened two hours late Monday, according to the Travis County Clerk’s office.
In a tweet posted at 7:19 a.m., the clerk’s office said a fire on the roof caused the closure of the Southpark Meadows location Monday at 9600 S. Interstate 35 Frontage Road. In an update, the clerk’s office said the location opened at 9 a.m. Early voting locations usually open at 7 a.m.
There are other places to cast a ballot early in south Austin — Austin Oaks Church, Dittmar Recreation Center, Westoak Woods Church and Dove Springs Recreation Center.
