The following are the election results from El Paso County that concern San Elizario, Texas. We have also included the Presidential.
As always, for El Paso County, voter turnout was low. There are 470,082 registered voters in the county and only 43,243 voted either early or during Tuesday’s elections. If you don’t vote you cannot make your voice heard. It’s as simple as that.
I’ve never understood why there are so many registered voters, yet so few cast their vote. Every election is important. If you don’t vote, you are allowing others to decide not only the fate of our county, city, country but your fate as well.
For the elections this November San Eli News will be organizing rides to the polls for those who cannot get there on their own.
We need to vote.
