Early voting begins Monday for the special election to fill the vacant Place-4 seat on the College Station City Council.

Ballot order for candidates:
• Marycruz DeLeón Morales

The vacancy was created when Councilwoman Elianor Vessali announced she would resign her seat in order to campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congressional Dist. 17 seat.

A full calendar for the special election can be found at cstx.gov/elections. Among the key dates:

Early voting period: Jan. 13-24

If there is a clear winner…
Results of the Jan. 28 special election will be canvassed during a special meeting of the city council on Feb. 6, and the winner could be sworn-in afterward. 

To win the special election outright, a candidate must win 50% of the votes plus one additional vote.

If there is not a clear winner…
If no candidate earns 50% +1, the top two candidates will meet again in a runoff election. Should that scenario be required, the following schedule will be implemented.

College Station Utilities Meeting & Training Facility, 1603 Graham Road.

Runoff Election Day: April 18 (times to be announced)
