Pecos County voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, July 14 to decide four run-off races and determine who will advance to the November General Election.
The deadline to register to vote for the July 14 election is Monday, June 15. Voters may register at the Pecos County Tax Assessor's Office, located in the Courthouse Annex, 200 S. Nelson St.
Safety measures will be in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Drive-up voting will be available. Early voting will be held Monday, June 29 to Friday, July 10.
