Early voting for runoff election underway in El Paso County
EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) —
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.
