If no single candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, plus one more vote, a run-off election will be scheduled between the top-two vote getters.
It will be up to the city council to decide when a runoff election would be held.
State law imposes guidelines on how a run-off must be scheduled.
“A run-off election shall be held not earlier than the 20th or later than the 45th day after the date the final canvass of the main election is completed,” according to the Texas Election Code.

Alright, the election is finally over! Congrats to the Winners. Too bad, so sad for the Losers. And, best wishes to the run-off Candidates.
Hopefully, the run-off election can be held within the next 2 weeks so we can put this fully behind us.
I would hope that ALL Candidates (Winners & Losers) will remove ALL their election signs by close of business on Monday to rid the town of this blight on the landscape.
I realize the run-off Candidates signs will continue to plague us until the City Council puts an end to the pain with a final election.
