City of Orange runoff early voting concludes Tuesday

ORANGE — Early voting for the first ever city council runoff election will conclude this Tuesday.

The City of Orange is having a runoff election on Saturday, June 21 for its at-large Position 6 council seat between candidates Cullin Smith and Larry Spears Jr. This is the first time a runoff has been called for under the new redistricting plan initiated by the city a couple of years ago.

In the May 10 City of Orange election, candidate Larry Spears Jr. received the most votes in the race for the Position 6 seat with a total of 354 votes, while candidate Cullin Smith with 318 votes and incumbent Charles Guillory with 183 votes. However, since Spears did not receive more than 50 percent of the vote total, a runoff is required under the new regulations as all seats are three year terms.

Early voting began on June 9 and continues through Tuesday, June 17. Early voting hours are 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday, June 16, and 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 17, and early voting is taking place at the Orange Public Library, 220 N. Fifth St. in Orange.

Election day hours are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Saturday, June 21. Depending upon which district you reside is where you are required to vote.

Residents in District 1 will vote at the Salvation Army location at the corner of MLK Drive and Strickland in Orange. Residents in District 2 will vote at Little Cypress Intermediate School at 2300 Allie Payne Road in Orange.

Voters who live within the boundaries of District 3 will cast a ballot at North Early Learning Center, 801 Cordrey Ave. in Orange, and those who live in District 4 will vote at West Orange-Stark Middle School off Green Avenue in Orange.
