Packets for City Council candidates to secure a place on the ballot in the May 2018 General Election can now be picked up at City Hall.

The two-year terms of three of the five at-large places are expiring this year.

Doug Mitchell, who is completing his only term on the Council, won’t be eligible because he has filed to run for a place on the Somervell County Commissioners Court.

The two Council members who currently have the other two expiring seats, Mayor Pro-Tem Sandra Ramsay and Robert Marquez, have not publicly announced whether they will be running for re-election.

Ramsay was elected in May 2011 to fill the one-year unexpired term of Barbara Mitchell Butler, and has been re-elected twice since then.

Marquez is completing his first two-year term this year.

The Council seats of Dennis Moore and relative newcomer Linda James — as well as first-year Mayor Sue Oldenburg — are not expiring this time around.

The first day of filing for a place on the ballot will be Wednesday, Jan. 17. The deadline for filing is set at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, according to Glen Rose City Secretary Terri Johnson.

April 23 will mark the first day for early voting by personal appearance. Early voting in person will end on May 1.

Election Day will be May 5. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
