Today is the last day to vote in the runoff election at UTSA
(June 6, 2017) -- Today is the last day to vote early in the Bexar County runoff elections. Any registered Bexar County voter, who is a San Antonio resident, may cast a ballot at UTSA in the Multidisciplinary Studies Building (MS 1.05), adjacent to the UTSA ID Card Office.
Ballots include the final two candidates for the San Antonio mayor and city council districts 1, 2, 6, 8, 9 and 10.
Earlier this year, UTSA's Center for Civic Engagement along with key community partners committed to a 20 percent voter turnout for this election. In the first round, nearly 12 percent of all registered voters in Bexar County showed up to the polls, the runoff election presents a fresh opportunity to reach the initial goal.
"There has been a tremendous amount of resources and a great team effort from many organizations to get out the vote," said Brian Halderman, director of the UTSA Center for Civic Engagement. "Citizen engagement is the most important function of our democracy, voting for those who represent us."
Among the many resources, the Center's Voter Engagement page remains a helpful tool for those needing up to date information about candidates and polling locations.

8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
