Wells Branch VOTES!

Election Day is November 6 Early voting begins October 22 and ends November 2 • Elected Officials need to know that Wells Branch is a Voting Community • Not only is it your RIGHT, it is your RESPONSIBILITY • Arm yourself with knowledge • Get informed • Then VOTE!

If you’re not registered yet, we’ll help you get registered.  You must register by October 9 in order to vote in the November 6 election.  Watch our website (wbna.us) for links to voting guides and polling locations.  If you need a ride, we’ll help you get there.  If you have questions, we’ll help you find the answers.  Email VOTE@wbna.us.

Don’t forget!  This election cycle includes some local elections that aren’t partisan.  If you vote a straight party ticket, make sure you scroll all the way to the end of the ballot and vote in the races that aren’t party affiliated (WB MUD Board & RRISD Board elections).  Who you elect at the local level can have a much greater impact on your everyday life than state or national elections.  Don’t forget, both RRISD & PfISD have bond initiatives on the ballot as well.


National Night Out

America’s Night Out Against Crime
Free Food • Great Company • Door Prizes!
Tuesday, October 2 • 6-8pm • Gazebo at KF Park

Join your Wells Branch neighbors for our night out against crime, Tuesday, October 2, from 6-8pm at the gazebo in Katherine Fleischer Park.  The WBNA will be serving up FREE hotdogs, sausage wraps, fruit & veggies, sodas and chips, and don’t forget the door prizes!

Distinguished guests from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, ESD No. 2 Fire Dept. and Precinct 2 Constable’s Office will be on hand to visit with residents and answer questions.  Both children and adults will have the opportunity to talk with first responders, receive information on Neighborhood Watch and other programs available to residents, and tour the fire safety house that ESD No. 2 will have onsite.
Come find out what’s going on in our community and discuss with local law enforcement officers and politicians what you can do to help reduce the opportunities for crimes to occur in our neighborhood.
National Night Out’s purpose is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, build neighborhood spirit and strengthen our law enforcement-community partnership.  Help send the message to criminals that Wells Branch is organized and fighting back.
Take a stand against crime.  Turn on your porch light and come join your friends and neighbors at the park for food and fellowship.  If you have a Neighborhood Watch group on your block (or even if you don’t) we’d like to encourage you to come eat dinner with us, listen to the speakers, and then return home to your street and gather with your neighbors over dessert to discuss how you can make your homes and our community safer.

We hope to see you there!
