Straight ticket voters might miss city races

As early voting continues, the San Marcos City Clerk’s office reminds straight ticket voters to double-check their ballot before hitting the “vote” button to ensure they have made selections in the local elections and any propositions on their ballot. 

Non-partisan elections such as city council and propositions will not automatically be selected if a voter chooses the “straight ticket” option. Voters should also pay special attention to elections in which a candidate is running unopposed and elections with no candidates from the voter’s selected straight ticket party.
