Travis County is 1,000 square miles, and Precinct 3 covers the most land and water (and has the most voters)! Yay us. Precinct 3 covers the entire western part of the county, including communities in the southwest and northwest. Click here or on the map to explore. I live in the middle of the county, near the University of Texas, which (in theory at least) makes it easy to get to any part of Precinct 3 pretty quickly.
I’ve already been asked a few times – what does a county commissioner do? A whole lot. The four commissioners and county judge are the chief policy-making and administrative body of Travis County government. The court sets a tax rate, sets fees for many county services, and determines how collected revenues are spent providing public services to Travis County's 1.25 million residents. The commissioners and judge also work closely with city, state and federal officials and agencies to coordinate policies and programs critical to local communities.
