Tuesday is last chance to vote

by Meghann Garcia, managing editor

Any Uvalde County voters who did not vote last week during the absentee period have one more chance on Tuesday, which is the official election day for primary runoff elections.

Polling sites across the county will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Last week, 1,266 people voted over the first four days of the absentee period, with 363 voting on Monday, 332 Tuesday, 301 Wednesday, and 270 on Thursday. The tally for Friday was not available when the newspaper was printed.

Of those 1,266 ballots, 1,213 were cast in the Democratic Party primary runoff, while 53 were for the Republican Party primary runoff.

Of the 668 ballots by mail requested, 374 have been returned to the Uvalde County elections office, headed by tax assessor/collector Maggie Del Toro. Completed mail-in ballots must be in the elections office by Tuesday.
