Two Bay Area contested races will see results starting Dec. 12.

Dec. 12 is election day for the runoff race between Bob Warters and Ashley Graves, who are running for Nassau Bay mayor.

In the Nov. 3 election, Warters got 945 votes, or 41.9% of all votes. Graves got 775 votes, or 34.3%. A third candidate, Jonathan Amdur, got 535 votes, or 23.9%.

Because no one secured at least 50% of the vote, a runoff is required between the top two candidates.

Warters and Graves are both on Nassau Bay City Council. Warters' council term has not expired, so if he loses the mayoral race, he will remain on the council. If he wins, the council will appoint someone to his seat.


Graves' council term has expired, so win or lose, her council position will be filled by the sole candidate who ran for her seat, Phil Johnson.

Meanwhile, four candidates will face off Dec. 15 in two runoff elections for League City City Council positions.

For Position 4, Rachel McAdam will face John P. Bowen. On Nov. 3, McAdam got 19,292 votes, or 48.7% of all votes, and Bowen got 10,982, or 27.8%.

For Position 5, Justin A. Hicks will face Wes Chorn. Hicks on Nov. 3 got 15,416 votes, or 38.7% of all votes, while Chorn got 13,120 votes, or 32.9%.

Nassau Bay residents can vote Dec. 12 at Nassau Bay City Hall, 1800 Space Park Drive, Ste. 200, Houston, from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

League City residents can vote Dec. 15 from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at several locations, seen here. Early voting is also available Dec. 10-11 from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at various locations.
