Election Day – Where And When To Vote in El Paso

Today is Election Day across Texas and here in El Paso. Polls open at 7 this morning and you can cast your ballot until 7 tonight.

Election Day In El Paso

Probably the most closely watched local race is for El Paso County Judge. Current County Judge Veronica Escobar, current City Rep. Eddie Holguin, and businesswoman Aliana Apodaca, are all fighting for the most powerful elected position in the County. The County Judge votes on all business that comes before Commissioners Court, unlike the Mayor of El Paso who only votes in cases of a tie on City Council.

Another hot race is for Texas State Rep. District 76 between current Rep. Naomi Gonzalez, and the woman she took the seat from, Norma Chavez, and Cesar Blanco, a veteran who previously served as chief of staff for U.S. Rep Pete Gallego. Many political watchers believe Chavez lost her office to Gonzalez because she “outed” Gonzalez during a heated public forum. Gonzalez also has a mark on her record because she was arrested last year for DWI in Austin.

The other race that has gotten a lot of press is the race for District 77 between current Rep. Marisa Marquez who is running against local lawyer Lyda Ness-Garcia, who last week said she was assaulted at her home by someone who said the attack was politically motivated. El Paso police are investigating Ness’ claim, but have not released any information about the incident.

Polls open up this morning around town at 7 a.m., and close at 7 p.m., so get out there and vote!  You can also check out a sample ballot for the Democratic, and Republican primaries.
