The Maverick County Commissioners Court is in preparations for the run-off elections which will take place in the month of July.
The Maverick County Commissioners Court held a meeting last week in which they discussed and approved numerous items related to the up coming run-off election.
The Texas Primary run-off elections scheduled for the month of May were postponed by Governor Greg Abbott back in March.
The elections are now scheduled for July 14; early voting will begin June 29 through July 10.
Locally, there are three races that are to be contested in this run-off election.
The run-off ballot will feature three Constable races.
In the Pct. 2 Constable race, Denise Cantu is headed into a run-off.
In the Precinct 1 Constable race
Incumbent Precinct 1 Constable Rudy Valdez will face off against
Oscar Ramos in a run-off.
In the Pct. 4 Constable race, Hector “Big Rod” Rodriguez and
Joe “Mike” Beattie will be headed into a run-off election.
The Maverick County Commissioners Court will be holding a meeting this Friday where they are looking to consolidate polling sites going from 14 to 8.
The run-off election was moved due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Many believe that voting will be decreased by a substantial amount this second round due to the pandemic.
