The runoffs for the March primaries were delayed from May, and early voting was extended by the governor’s office to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Early voting was held from June 29-July 10, excluding July 3-4.
Election Day voting will be held at 28 polling locations in Guadalupe County and 12 locations in Comal County, and voters can cast ballots at any location in their county from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
Two early voting locations in Comal County—the Comal County Elections Center and CRRC of Canyon Lake—will not be available for voting July 14.
Registered voters who cast a ballot in the March primaries must vote in the same party’s runoff for the July election, and those who did not vote in March will choose which party’s runoff to vote in when they arrive at the polling location.
Hand sanitizer will be provided by both counties. The Comal County Elections Office will provide disposable styluses and finger coverings for voters, and voting machines will be sanitized after each use.
According to a county press release, 3,749 Comal County residents had cast ballots and another 2,144 had returned ballots by mail as of July 8. Roughly 5.5% of the county’s 108,122 registered voters have cast a ballot in the runoffs thus far, according to the county.
In Guadalupe County, 5,284 ballots had been cast as of July 9, representing 5.04% of the county’s 104,766 registered voters, according to data from the county.
