Early Voting Numbers Show Interest in College Station Race

By  | 

With two runoff city council races in Bryan and one in College Station, you might think that would mean more ballots cast in Bryan.

That's not the case this year.

In College Station, 1,530 people voted early. 1509 were in person while the remaining 21 were mail-in ballots.

Only one race is on the ballot in College Station. That's for the unexpired term of Place One, formerly held by Ben White.

White moved up on the council after being elected mayor in May.

The runoff race to fill the one-year unexpired term features former councilman John Happ and political newcomer John Crompton.

In Bryan, 528 people turned out for early voting and another 32 mail-in ballots were sent out.

Two races are on the Bryan ballot.

Perennial candidate Migel "Mike" Flores is running against former councilman Paul Madison for the Single Member District 2 seat.

The position became available when former councilwoman Annette Stephney did not seek reelection.

The other runoff in Bryan is for the one-year unexpired term for Single Member District 4.

Former Bryan mayor Lloyd Joyce is running against first-time candidate Ann Horton.

The winner will replace Mark Conlee, who was elected mayor of Bryan in May.

Election Day is Saturday, June 23.
