Primary run-offs draw few to vote early

On day one of early voting in the May 24 Republican and Democratic primary run-off elections 18 had cast ballots in Port Aransas by mid-afternoon on Monday, May 16.

Early voting continues through Friday, May 20.

Voting in Port Aransas is at the Bill Ellis Memorial Library. Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voting in this election is quite a contrast from the city’s recent election for mayor and three council positions that drew more than 1,000 voters just in early voting.

Voters who cast ballots in the Republican primary in March may vote in the Republican run-off, but not in the Democratic run-off. The same is true of voters who cast ballots in the Democratic primary. They may vote in the Democratic run-off, but not in the Republican run-off.

Following are the races in both run-offs.
