On Saturday, May 4th, we’ll head to the polls to vote for Mayor and City Council representatives. (Many voters will also elect school board members, and lots of municipalities outside of San Antonio city limits will vote on their own representatives.) Voting is easy and quick, but it does take a bit of preparation and information! Find out exactly what you’ll need to do, and head to ilovesanantonio.org if you have more questions.
Make sure you’re registered! The deadline to vote in this election is Thursday, May 4th. To register, you’ll need to fill out a form, print it, sign it, and mail it in. You can also stop by your San Antonio Public Library branch to get the form in person and get help if you need it. Not sure if you’re registered or your information is up to date? Check your registration here.
