Denton Council Election Results

Denton Stories

On Saturday, voters across Denton went to the polls in order to elect city council members as well as approve or reject two property tax amendments that will be added to our Texas Constitution.

The voters approved two propositions intended to lower property taxes for homeowners by decisive margins – one aimed at older and disabled Texans, the other a more modest relief that will affect all Texans.

The City Council will canvas the unofficial election results at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at City Hall, Council Chambers, 215 E. McKinney, Denton, Texas.
