Primary run-off elections have started today Monday, May 14, 2018 through Friday, May 18 at the Eagle Pass Multi-Purpose Center from 8 am to 5 pm with one day to be designated for special voting hours. Election day is scheduled for Tuesday May 22, 2018.
Locally the talk of the town is the Maverick County Judge run-off election between incumbent Judge David Saucedo and former Judge Rudy Bowles.
Other positions being contested include the Commissioner Precinct 2 race between Rosy Cantu and challenger Arianna Perez.
Cantu received the most votes during the first round of voting. Both individuals have been busy block walking asking the community for their votes.
Another position up for grabs is for Maverick County Justice of the Peace Precinct No. 2 between incumbent Judge Dora Madera and Roxanna “Roxi” Rios. The other local race is for the position of Maverick County Justice of the Peace Precinct No. 3A-B between incumbent Judge David A. Castaneda and Domingo “Mingo” Garcia.
There are no Republican Party candidates in the November 8th General Election for any of these positions. It’s expected that whoever wins their respective election will be declared the winner in the electoral process, unless there is a write-in candidate in the November 8th general election.
Other key races include the battle for the U.S. House of Representative/Congress, District 23 of Texas, between Gina Ortiz Jones and Rick Trevino. The declared winner of this race will go against Republican Incumbent Congressman Will Hurd in the November 8th General Election.
The position to challenge for the Texas governorship is also up for grabs. Democratic Texas voters will have to choose between businessman Andrew White and former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez.
Registered voters are encouraged to come out and exercise your right to vote during the election process.
