EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Voters in parts of East El Paso and the Lower Valley went to the polls to cast ballots in who will represent them in City Council.
Early voting numbers were dismal for both races, pulling only 2,567 voters, or 2.7% of eligible voters, into the voting booth in the first ten days of early voting.
In the District 3 race, it’s a runoff election between incumbent Cassandra Hernandez and challenger Will Veliz in a controversial race initiated after Hernandez’s campaign launched a Facebook page announcing her intention to run for Mayor.
