Local city and school district elections will take place in May. Voters will have a chance to choose a representative for two City Council seats serving districts 3 and 4. In addition, New Braunfels ISD will have two seats for single-member districts 3 and 5 on the ballot; seats for single-member districts 1, 2 and 5 are up for election in Comal ISD.
Locally elected officials have the most influence on our daily lives, yet voter turnout is typically low in primary elections. In Comal County, voter turnout is typically high, but the precincts that fall within the city of New Braunfels are among the lowest according to Comal County Elections Coordinator Cynthia Jaqua.
We are fortunate to live in a country where we have a voice, and I encourage you to get more information on the candidates who are running in upcoming elections and exercise your right to vote.
