The upcoming city election was the focus for the Humble City Council at its last meeting.

The council approved two amendments to Ordinance 19-837 (ordering a general election for May 4, 2019): first, amending Section 4 which covers election day locations, and second, amending Section 5 which covers early voting locations. The amendment also orders the general election to be administered by the Harris County Elections Administrator.

The council also approved the agreement between the City of Humble and Humble ISD, which states that early voting and election day voting by personal appearance will be held at a common location in order to conduct the city’s general election and the district’s regular trustee election.

The general election will be held for the purpose of electing a mayor and two city councilmembers. Mayor Merle Aaron, the incumbent, will run against Humble resident Arliss Bentley; Charles “Andy” Curry (Place 1) and Glenn Redmon (Place 2) are both unopposed.

Early voting, which begins April 22 and ends April 30, will be held at City Hall, 114 W. Higgins. Voting locations and information about voting by mail can be found at HarrisVotes.org.

Voters can register at VoteTexas.gov. The deadline to register for the May 4 General Election is April 4.
