Early voting for the special election to replace Larry Romero in District 2 is over and the numbers are in: 850 people have voted. According to KVIA, this election is costing the tax payers at least $40,000 and as much as $80,000 (if there is a run-off). County Elections Administrator Lisa Wise estimates that as low as 2000 people are going to turn-out to vote, so taxpayers (all tax payers, not just District 2 tax payers), could be paying as high as $20 per vote.
