Early voting for the Glen Rose City Council election, the Glen Rose ISD School Board and an upcoming runoff election will be underway soon.
Monday, April 23, will be the first day of early voting for the City Council race (three at-large places to be filled), as well as for the GRISD School Board (two trustee places to be filled). The final day of early voting in those two elections will be Tuesday, May 1. Election Day will be Saturday, May 5.
The five City Council candidates are Chris Bryant, Julia Douglas, Robert Marquez, Cheryl Sheets and Laverne West.
The four School Board candidates are Matt Langford, Marilyn Phillips, Paul Phillips and Brian Statler.
Also, a Republican runoff for Precinct 2 commissioner is set for Tuesday, May 22, but early voting will start May 14 and end May 18. That runoff is between Dwayne Johnson and Richard Talavera, the top two vote-getters in what was a three-way contest in the March 6 election.
The City Council early voting will be at City Hall, 201 NE Vernon St. in Glen Rose. The early voting will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 23, and April 25 through April 30. The early voting hours will be extended — 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. — on Tuesday, April 24 and Tuesday, May 1. Election Day voting (May 5) in that race will be at City Hall also, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
The early voting for the School Board race will be at the GRISD Administration Building, 1102 Stadium Dr., in Glen Rose. The poll will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, April 23-May 1. The May 5 election votes will be cast at the Glen Rose City Hall, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
