In May there are 3 run-off’s and a special election, and not all of that is happening on the same day. So, for clarification, here are the dates and elections:
Special election to fill the District 2 spot vacated by Romero will be held on May 7th. Currently there are 3 candidates for the position: Jim Tolbert, David Nevarez and Angel Del Toro. You can read our post about them here. Your last day to register to vote, if you haven’t already, April 7th. Early voting is April 25 – May 3, 2016.
There are 3 run-offs that will be held on May 24th:
- District Attorney – this is a race between incumbent Jaime Esparza and first-time candidate Yvonne Rosales. You can read our previous posts about them here.
- Justice on the state’s Eighth Court of Appeals – this is a race between Gina Palafox and Maria Ramirez. We realized that we had neglected to post on this race, so look for our post this week!
- El Paso County Tax Assessor-Collector – this is a race between incumbent Ruben Gonzalez (who was not elected to the position, but rather appointed by the County Commissioners last year) and Siria Rocha. You can read our previous posts about them here.
Your last day to register to vote for the May 24th election is April 25th. Early voting is May 16-20, 2016.
So get those voting fingers ready! We’re giving you PLENTY of notice so you have no excuse.
