Early voting off to slow start
As of mid-morning Tuesday,
May 3, only 37 voters had cast ballots, she said.
Still, “It’s pretty good for early voting with only one race,” Bomarito added.
Early voting will continue through Tuesday, May 10, at the Community Center, 408 N. Alister St.
Hours for voting through Friday, May 6, will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Voting hours Saturday, May 7, will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Hours for voting the last two days of early voting, Monday and Tuesday, May 9 and 10, will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Election Day is Saturday, May 14, when voting hours at the Community Center will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Election results will be available that evening from about 7: 30 p. m. until approximately 9 p. m. at the South Jetty office, 141 W. Cotter Ave., or by calling the newspaper office at (361) 749-5131. Results also will be posted on the South Jetty Web site, www.portasouthjetty.com.
On the ballot are one contested race for Place 1 between incumbent Keith Donley and Monte Sirmon, and a $6.4 million bond issue for improvements to 11th Street. Unopposed are Charles Bujan in Place 3 and Edwin Myers in Place 5. Incumbent in Place 5, Rick Pratt, is completing his third and final term in accordance with the city charter term limits.
No races on the Port Aransas ISD board of trustees were contested, so no election is being held. It is an off year for elections in the Nueces County Water Control and Improvement District No. 4.
