Austin City Council Runoff 2011 – Election Day Saturday June 18

Early voting for the runoff election for the Place 3 Austin City Council position ended on Tuesday, June 14, 2011.  Election day for the runoff is Saturday, June 18, 2011.

Turnout is expected to be low after just a small percentage of voters participated in the initial elections, many of whom were drawn to various school district trustee contests as well as funding bond initiatives.

We’ve previously posted details about the Place 3 runoff election, and invite you read the complete story by clicking here.

YOU DID NOT HAVE TO VOTE IN THE INITIAL ELECTION. ANY REGISTERED VOTER MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE RUNOFF ELECTION.

Here is a brief summary of the Place 3 Runoff:

The Place 3 election results were posted on the City of Austin website.

• Kathie Tovo 14,846 (46.38 percent)
• Randi Shade 10,530 (32.90 percent)
• Michael “Max” Nofziger 4,562 (14.25 percent)
• Kris Bailey 2,069 (6.46 percent)

The top two candidates, Kathie Tovo and incumbent Randi Shade, will enter a runoff election to determine the winner of this seat. The votes cast in the previous round do not count in the runoff balloting. Both candidates will enter the runoff with zero votes.

PLEASE VOTE! As citizens of a representative democracy, our voices are heard primarily through the elections we hold to select those who will work on our behalf. It is our civic responsibility to participate in the election process and one of the fundamental rights afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution. Please take just a few minutes and vote!
