Submission of documents for the municipal elections on May 6 will begin

Candidates can begin filing their campaign papers on Wednesday for the May 6 municipal elections.

Hunt County Electoral Commission Administrator Jeannie Ash said it was too early to tell what choices voters might have.

“It’s still premature,” Ash said Friday. Feb. 17 is the deadline for organizations such as city governments and school boards to announce elections.”

However, she knows there will likely be many options to choose from. There will be at least five elections to fill city and/or school district council seats in Hunt County.

“And I have two cities that have shown interest in the snap election,” Ash said.

Two seats are open on the Greenville City Council and three positions will be designated on the Greenville Independent School District School Board.

The application deadline for candidates who are due to start nominating themselves for election will be extended until 17 February.

3rd and 4th seats in the city council will be put to the vote. Kristen Washington currently serves in seat 3 and Tim Cruz in seat 4.

Seats 2, 3 and 4 will be on the Greenville ISD Board ballot. Trena Stafford serves in 2nd place, Bonnie Jean-Stewart in 3rd place and Tish Woodruff in 4th place.

Early voting in the elections is scheduled for April 24-28.

Voters can now apply to vote by mail, and the deadline to register to vote is April 6.
