Early voting is underway in Texas, it started on Tuesday following the Columbus Day holiday with plenty of local voters participating in the federal, state and local elections. This year election administrators are expecting a higher-than-usual turnout due to the presidential election, but also due to the fact that several local elections originally scheduled for May were pushed back to November in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of Del Rio, Val Verde County Hospital District, and two school districts – San Felipe Del Rio CISD and Comstock ISD – contracted the services of the Val Verde County Clerk’s office, which is acting as an election administrator.
