Early Voting Turnout Dismal for Saturday May 6 Election

SAN ANGELO, TX – Early voting for the May 2023 municipal election came to an end on Tuesday with hardly anyone in the city casting a vote.

According to the Tom Green County Elections Office, during early voting from Apr. 24 until May 2, 2023, 517 citizens cast their votes in person and 78 citizens casted absentee votes. There are currently 67,899 registered voters in Tom Green County.

This means less than one percent of voters casted ballots during early voting with .876 percent.

During this election, voters have the choice in San Angelo to raise the qualifications of the San Angelo Chief of Police, move the Police Chief election to coincide with Single Member District 1,3, and 5 city council seats, and clear up wording in the City Charter about the Police Chief duties and authority.

In SMD 3, there is a race for the City Council seat. The race is between incumbent councilman Harry Thomas and challenger Michael LePak. Other items on the ballot in Tom Green County include Lipan Kickapoo Water District directors and Wall and Grape Creek ISD trustees.

Election Day is Saturday, May 6, 2023 and polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The Keyes Building downtown is NOT a polling location Saturday.
