Colleyville's five propositions are passing, according to early voting numbers.

At meetings last night, both San Marcos and Buda city councils adopted official voting times and locations for their respective runoff elections.

During the November election, candidates in some races failed to receive at least 50 percent of votes in the races for San Marcos mayor, City Council Place 2 and City Council Place 3 as well as Buda City Council Place 1. Both cities will begin early voting Dec. 1 and hold their Election Day on Dec. 13.

The adopted dates fall later than original proposals due to the Thanksgiving holiday and office closures, city staff said.
