PV precincts open for Tuesday election

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — A slow turnout on Friday kicked off the early voting period as a runoff election next week will decide which candidate will take a seat on Pauls Valley’s city council.

On the ballot for the runoff vote on Tuesday, May 14 are two names, Hal Blevins and Zac Brumley.

Blevins, the incumbent, is looking to earn another four-year term on the local city council, while Brumley is challenging to break through and take the council seat held by Blevins since 2009.

In-person absentee voting, available to registered voters in Pauls Valley, will continue from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, May 13.

The early voting is again held at the offices of the Garvin County Election Board located in the county courthouse in Pauls Valley.

On Tuesday’s election day all precincts in Pauls Valley will be open the customary hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Those precincts include:

• the Meridian branch of the PV National Bank

• AFLAC building on Airline Road

• Donihoo-Colley Complex on Melville Drive

• PV’s First United Methodist Church at Willow and Rennie streets

• the Bosa Community Center.

One other precinct, the Bill Mitchell Complex in Lindsay, will also be open for an Alex school vote on Tuesday.

In the election Blevins and Brumley are squaring off again after they were the top vote-getters out of the three candidates running in the primary election early last month.

In that election Blevins finished with the most votes followed by Brumley and Jeff Paine, who came in third place dropping him out of the race.

The same election also resulted in longtime mayor and council member, Tim Gamble, losing to challenger Patrick Grimmett.

Grimmett is expected to be sworn into office during a regular council meeting now scheduled for Tuesday’s election night.

It was also announced this week a special vote will be needed this summer after Stratford’s mayor, John Jolley, recently resigned from the position.

An election has been scheduled for July 9.
