Place-4 City Council runoff election to be delayed

Place-4 City Council runoff election to be delayed
Posted on 03/24/2020
In light of the two-week shelter-in-place order, and our commitment to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the City of College Station is delaying the April 18 runoff election that will fill Place-4 on the City Council.

Details will be forthcoming as city staff continues to work closely with both the county and state election offices, according to City Secretary Tanya Smith.

“At this point, we don’t yet know what mechanism will be required to set a new runoff election date, but we are communicating with each candidate to ensure they're aware of this ongoing process."

As a reminder, results from a four-candidate Jan. 28 special election resulted in Elizabeth Cunha and Joe Guerra, Jr. advancing to a runoff election. Early voting was set to begin April 1.

The unexpired term for Place-4 runs through November 2021, at which point the seat will be on the ballot for a full three-year term. The seat was vacated last fall when Councilwoman Elianor Vessali resigned to seek the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congressional Dist. 17 seat.
