LA JOYA—The 2013 May elections are on the horizon, as March 1 marked the deadline to file ballots for the next term. In Western Hidalgo County, only the City of La Joya will be holding an election in May.

La Joya City Administrator Mike Alaniz said the city will hold a home rule election, to determine if residents want La Joya to become a home rule city. Early voting for the May 11 election will begin on April 29.

The cities of Alton and Peñitas have cancelled May elections due to no opponents filing against the current council members. Palmview, Palmhurst and Mission are not due to hold May elections until 2014.

Mission School Board Elections

The Mission School Board will also not be holding May Elections. The next board election will be held on May 2014, according to Director of Public Relations Craig Verley. Board member positions up for election next year are Position 1, held by Raymond Longoria; Position 6, held by James Olivarez; and Position 7, held by Oscar Martinez.
