Officials ready for May runoff

Cameron County’s election officials are already making preparations for the May runoff.

These include listing polling locations, drafting the new ballots and registering new voters.

Elections Administrator Remi Garza said a larger turnout than usual is expected for the runoffs.

“We’re anticipating about 50 percent of the voters that turned out on (March 1). That’s based on the numbers that showed up in the primary,” Garza said.

A total of 44,475 voters made it out to the polls for the March primaries.

Both parties have sent their lists in for polling locations available on May 24, Election Day.

The Cameron County Democratic Party will host the same locations that were available on March 1.

A full list of the locations can be found online at the Cameron County Department of Elections and Voter Registration website.
