Only 988 Rosenberg voters have cast early ballots so far in the Saturday, June 8 city of Rosenberg runoff election.
Early voting began Monday, May 27, and ends at 7 p.m. today. Not even 1% of registered voters have cast ballots during the early voting period.
Of those who have voted, 705 votes were cast in person and 283 were cast by mail-in ballots.
During early voting ballots may be cast at the Fort Bend County Annex Building, 4520 Reading Road in Rosenberg.
Voters will cast ballots in two city council races: At-Large Position 1 and At-Large Position 2. Candidates seeking the Position 1 seat on the Rosenberg City Council are incumbent Jacob Balderas and former city council woman Alice Jozwiak.
Seeking the Position 2 seat on the council are former Rosenberg police detective Kevin Raines and former city council woman Susan Kroll Euton. They were the top vote-getters for the positions in the May 4 city election. However, a runoff election is needed because no single candidate in either race won more than 50% of the vote.
Of the 17,727 registered voters in Rosenberg, about 10% cast ballots in the election.
A total of .055% — or half of 1% — have cast ballots during early voting. Winners of the runoff election will serve two-year terms of office.
Council members are limited to three consecutive terms.
