SAN ANTONIO — On Saturday, San Antonio voters will decide who leads city hall for the next two years. The mayor and six city council members will be elected during the June 10 runoff.
Who’s on the ballot?
The mayoral race will be on everyone's ballot. You can see whether a city council race will be on your ballot by providing your address here on the Bexar County Elections Department website.
Study up. You can watch the mayoral forum we hosted in February at this link. (Note: Bexar County Democratic Chair Manuel Medina was eliminated during the May 6 election and will not appear on the June 10 ballot.) Texas Public Radio also hosted a mayoral forum in April that you can watch here.
The District 2 race made headlines a few times in recent months. Warrick, seen on video sleeping on a bench outside city hall in late May, initially said he’d been drugged at a local bar. The next day, he retracted the story and apologized, saying he probably just had too much to drink. There was also that strange he-said-she-said over a $15,000 endorsement deal.
You can also look up candidates’ websites online.

Saturday, June 10 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Four candidates won during the May 6 election with more than 50 percent of the vote and will soon begin their terms. Ana Sandoval upset District 7 councilman Cris Medina. Three council members won re-election: District 3’s Rebecca Viagran, District 4’s Rey Saldaña and District 5’s Shirley Gonzales. Full election results from May 6 are available here.
If no candidate in one race won more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two finishers challenge each other in the June 10 runoff. The slate is now clean, and only the votes for the June 10 election will determine the winners.
San Antonio’s city elections are nonpartisan. Candidates are not identified by party on the ballot.
Turnout could be low, but that means you probably won’t have to wait for a voting booth. Just 60,535 San Antonians voted early for the June 10 election out of more than a million registered Bexar County voters.
