One early voting site for the Alamo Colleges board election May 10 will be at this college at William R. Sinkin Eco Centro, 1802 N. Main Ave.
Early voting is from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. April 28-May 2 and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. May 3 and 5-6.
Thursday is the last day to register to vote in the May 10 election, board liaison Sandra Mora said.
The board seats of Marcelo Casillas of District 4, Gary Beitzel of District 8 and James Rindfuss of District 9 are up for re-election to six-year terms.
Candidates who filed for the District 4 seat, which represents the Southwest Side of Bexar County, are Lorena “Lorraine” Pulido, public relations officer for the city of San Antonio; Albert Herrera, who listed his profession as business management; and Enedina Kikuyu, community organizer.
Student Genevieve Trinidad, who filed Feb. 28, withdrew from the election March 5. Trinidad has not responded to multiple calls from The Ranger regarding why she chose to withdraw her candidacy.
District 8 trustee Gary Beitzel, who represents the North Side, reapplied. Other candidates for his seat are Northside Independent School District teacher William Clint Kingsbery and civil engineer Steven Anthony Gonzales.
James Rindfuss, current District 9 trustee representing the Northeast Side, also is seeking re-election. Processing engineer Felix M. Grieder filed for the position as well.
Mora said the district does not plan to organize an open forum for the candidates to share views with their constituents.
Northwest Vista College is organizing an open forum for District 8 candidates 4:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. April 9 in the Cypress Campus Theater at the Lago Vista Lakeside Patio.
Other early voting sites include the basement of the Bexar County Justice Center, 300 Dolorosa.
