Election day arrives in District 4
Tuesday, January 25, 2022 by Jo Clifton
Voters in Austin’s District 4 have their final chance today to select a new City Council member. With Greg Casar stepping down to run for Congress, voters in this district have the opportunity to select a new representative at City Hall. As of the close of the early voting period on Friday, just 1,874 voters, or 5.41 percent of voters, in the district had cast ballots, with turnout Friday twice that of any of the days before that. Candidates hoping people will come out to vote today include Monica Guzmán, Amanda Rios, Melinda Schiera, José “Chito” Vela, Jade Lovera, Ramesses II Setepenre and Isa Boonto. Setepenre and Boonto have not been campaigning much and both failed to file the required campaign finance report last week. Find voting locations here.
