Early voting for the Nov. 3 general election has begun so it’s time to head to the polls to cast ballots for the candidates of a voter’s choice.

The 17-day period began this Tuesday, Oct. 13, and will end at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30.

A number of offices are at stake, the most important of which is the presidential race between President Donald Trump, who is seeking re-election on behalf of the Republican Party, and Joe Biden, a Democrat.

There are also a number of local races, including for Cameron County Sheriff between Eric Garza, a Democrat, and John Chambers, a Republican.
Here in Los Fresnos, two spots are up for grabs on the city council.

For the mayoral seat, Alejandro Flores filed for the spot and he is running unopposed.

For Place 1, Polo Narvaez is facing Gordon Cappon.

Under the city chapter, Narvaez has been mayor for three terms and couldn’t run for the same spot so he filed for the seat to be left vacant by Yolanda Cruz, who also has exceeded her term on the council.

Early voting by person will take place at the Los Fresnos Community Center at 204 N. Brazil St.

For ballots by mail, please send them to: Elections Administrator, P.O. Box 3587, Brownsville, Texas 78523.
