District 3 council member candidates gathering support for votes

Posted: Updated:

You now have just one hour left to cast your ballot in Saturday's city and school elections.

Polls close at 7 p.m.

Voters across the South Plains are deciding on city council candidates, school board members and school bond elections. Three seats are on the ballot.

District three is guaranteed a new representative since current Councilman Todd Klein is not seeking re-election.

Local barber Maurice Stanley, businessman Jeff Griffith, and Deanne Clark, who is retired, are all running to fill that seat.

KCBD caught up with all the candidates Saturday afternoon.

They all said they were up early preparing for the election. They've been visiting voting locations as well as taking and making phone calls – all in an effort to get residents out to polls and increase voter turnout.

"I think the most enjoyable part is getting out and visiting with people," Stanley said. "Of course, I've had 24 years of town hall experience at the barber shop."

"It's been a lot of fun," Griffith said. "I've been going around to different voting centers to talking to folks, and of course, trying to get a last few votes.

"We've been on the telephone most of the day," Clark said, "seeking out voters because the turnout has been so low that we've been trying to pep up and encourage our voters, and everyone in this whole wide city needs to know how extremely how important every vote is."

You still have a chance to make that vote count. As long as you are in line by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.
