Early Voting Underway For College Station City Council Special Election

Monday marks the start of two weeks of early voting for the special election to fill the vacancy on the College Station city council through November 2021.

There is one location for early voting, the College Station Utilities meeting and training facility on Graham Road.

Voting will take place January 13 through 17 and 21 and 22 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and January 23 and 24 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Learn more about the candidates…Marycruz DeLeón Morales, David Fujimoto, Elizabeth Cunha, and Joe Guerra…by listening to their comments from last week’s Bryan/College Station chamber of commerce forum that was moderated by WTAW’s Scott DeLucia.

Election day is January 28 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at College Station city hall.

If there is a clear winner…someone receiving at least 50 percent plus one additional vote, results will be canvassed during a special meeting of the city council on February 6, and the winner could be sworn-in afterward.

If no candidate earns 50% +1, the top two candidates will meet again in a runoff election.

According to the city of College Station, the runoff election will take place April 18 with early voting between April 1 and 14.

The runoff can not be held during the March 3 primary, according to the city, because the primary election, final tabulation, and potential primary runoff scenario limits College Station’s ability to share resources with the county.

If there is a council runoff, the city’s projected cost is less than $15,000 dollars.
