City council sets voting locations, extended hours for runoff election
The San Marcos City Council approved amended locations and hours of operation for the Dec. 8 runoff election for the mayor’s race and council place 5.
The proposed amendment from the Nov. 16 special meeting was to expand hours of operation from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and to add six locations.
Hays County Elections Administrator Jennifer Anderson said due to staffing issues, the hours of operation could only be expanded if the Sunday date was removed, which was reflected in the amendment and agreed upon by the quorum of city councilmembers.
Unfortunately, not all of the proposed additional polling locations were available to be added to the list for early voting.
The final approved early voting locations will be at Centro Cultural Hispano, Dunbar Center, Hays County Government Center, Hays County Transportation Yarrington Building and the Live Oak Health Partners on Broadway Street.
Early voting hours will be Saturday; Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Monday Nov 30 through Thursday Dec 3 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Friday Nov. 4 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Texas State University Performing Arts Center is available for the same early voting hours beginning Nov. 30.
On Election Day, Dec. 8, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The approved list of Election Day voting locations are as follows: Centro Cultural Hispano, Dunbar Center, First Baptist Church, Hays County Government Center, Hays County Transportation Yarrington Building, the Live Oak Health Partners on Broadway Street, San Marcos Housing Authority/CM Allen and Sinai Pentecostal.
