Early voting begins in San Bentio for commission seats.
Early voting began on Wednesday for the June 19th special election to fill two city commission seats vacated in San Benito. The seats became vacated when commissioners declared former mayor Joe Hernandez and former commissioner Rene Farias ineligible for office. Farias is seeking the Place 1 seat he vacated for violating the city charter on delinquent property taxes. In Place 2, three candidates are running for that position vacated by Jack Garcia. The early voting will be held at City Hall during the weekdays from 8 AM till 5 PM.
