Early voting went well, administrator says

May 11, 2011

As early voting in this year's municipal elections closed Tuesday, election official say more than 700 local residents have already cast their ballot in a contest that will decide the fate of proposed term limits for Big Spring City Council members.

Howard County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom said the total number of early voting ballots collected is approximately 750, slightly higher than she had expected in the municipal contest.

“I'd have to say it's a little higher than I had expected,” Bloom said. “There was a lot of interest in the proposed term limits, and the races for the seats on the city council have generated quite a bit of controversy. We're hoping this will carry over into Election Day, which is Saturday.”

The proposed term limits have become a hot topic in the Crossroads area during the past several months, as the charter amendment — which was spawned by a local petition — will either be approved or rejected by voters.

The amendment would prevent council members from running for re-election after serving two consecutive terms, according to City Attorney Linda Sjogren.
