Early voting for runoff election underway in El Paso County

Voters can head to the polls starting Wednesday for two El Paso City Council races.

In District 1 incumbent Peter Svarzbein faces challenger Veronica Frescas.

The other race is in District 8. Cissy Lizarraga hopes to keep her seat against Nicholas Vasquez.

The last time there was a special runoff -- last year, also for District 8 -- slightly more than 3,000 people voted. That's a fraction of the more than 459,000 registered voters in the county.

The election is Dec. 15.
