Election season’s end is nigh, and candidates across city, county, state, and federal races will host their last hurrahs once the sun goes down and voting totals start to trickle in. Parties are open to supporters and generally start when the polls close at 7pm, then tend to shut down when the race is called (for the losers) or when the alcohol runs out (to the victors go the …). If you can’t find your candidate below, visit our Civics calendar online at austinchronicle.com/events for last-minute additions.
