Learn about judicial races at debate

The March 6 primary ballot will have many races on it whether you vote Republican or Democratic.

The San Antonio Area League is helping you sort out the candidates with debates in which everyone running in each race in the debate is invited to participate.

Judicial races are particularly difficult because the candidates are largely unfamiliar. Attending the League's next debate should help matters.

Coming up
What: Debate among criminal district court candidates.
When: Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 6 p.m.
Where: UTSA downtown campus in the Aula Canaria room. Free parking in lot D3.

Election-related news

If you vote early (Through March 2), you can vote at any voting site.  Locations are posted on the Bexar County Elections Department website, bexar.org/elections. If you vote on election day, you must vote at your assigned site. It may have changed. New, yellow voter registration cards have been mailed. Check your precinct number and then look here to see if your location has changed.
