District 8 and Socorro Mayoral races to be decided

EL PASO, Texas - Voters in the borderland will decided who will be the next mayor of Socorro and who will become city representative for District 8.

Those running for Socorro mayor are: Elia Garcia, Joe Ramirez, Alejandro Garcia and Ivy Avalos.

District 8 will come down to Robert Cormell and Cissy Lizarraga.

Last month, Cormell received more than 42-percent of the vote, but that was not enough to avoid a runorr with Lizarraga.

Early voting numbers for the runoff election were very low.  Only about 16-hundred people voted, out of the more than 39-thousand registered voters in the district. That makes the turnout only 4.3 percent.

The polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Here's a link to polling sites for the election.
