House District 50 runoff Election Day polling hours extended

Posted: Updated:

A judge has granted a request to keep polling locations open for an extra hour.

Today is Election Day in the House District 50 special election to replace State Representative Mark Strama. Democrat Celia Israel and Republican Mike Vandewalle are the candidates

Travis County Clerk Dana Debeauvoir went to Judge Scott Jenkins late this afternoon asking for an extension for voters, which he granted.

The winter weather kept 8 polls from opening on time. Those polling locations were at schools.

Polling locations will close at 8 p.m.
