With the approval of Judge Ben Lehman’s Order of Special Elections, Plantersville is less than two months away from becoming the sixth incorporated city in the County of Grimes.
The first thing, Lehman said, is for citizens to sign up to run for mayor, marshall and five alderman positions. It does not cost anything to run. Sign-ups run through June 15th, with the actual elections on July 15th.
County Voter Registrar Rebecca Duff says sign-ups will take place in Judge Lehman’s office, where potential candidates can also make sure they are among the 395 residents living within the city limits.
Early Voting, duff explains, runs June 28th through July 11th. Hours will be 8 to 5, except for extended hours of 7 to 7 on both Monday, July the 3rd and 10th. But to vote early, she tells Navasota News, will require a trip to Anderson.
