LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Over 500 people so far have voted at the polls on Saturday for the Lubbock City Council District 3 run-off election.

Deanne Clark and Jeff Griffith are seeking the seat being left by former Councilman Todd Klein.

Polls are already open, and they will close Saturday night at 7 p.m. And as long as voters are in line by 7 p.m., they are allowed to vote.

Kim Davis, with the Lubbock Office of Elections, said the turnout is good, but could be even better.

"We're always happy to see anybody turn out at the polls," Davis said, "but I'm sure in District 3, folks are hoping that a little more would have turned out so far. But there's still an hour, so let's get folks out there and vote."

Saturday's run-off election is unique – it's the first of its kind in more than ten years, according to Davis.

"It's been more than a decade that we've had a run-off in District 3 in more than a decade," she said. "We've had run-offs in other districts since that time, but for District 3, however it's been more than a decade. So it's been quite some time."

Voting Locations:

  • Home Depot – 2615 50th St.
  • Parsons Elementary—2811 58th St.
  • Roscoe Wilson Elementary School – 2807 25th St.
  • Smylie Wilson Middle School – 4402 31st St.
  • Sunset Church of Christ, The Well – 3651 34th St.

Watch KCBD tonight at 10 p.m. for the final poll results.
