SAN ANTONIO – The polls will open Monday for early voting in the runoff election to fill the seat in Texas House District 124.

Former Bexar County prosecutor Ina Minjarez and former San Antonio City Council Member Delicia Herrera are going head-to-head to fill the seat vacated by now Sen. Jose Menendez.

Minjarez and Herrera were the two leading vote-getters in the special election held at the end of March.

Neither candidate earned more than 50 percent of the vote in the special election, leading to the runoff.

Gov. Gregg Abbott set the runoff election date for April 21.

Early voting runs through Friday. Click here to go to the Bexar County elections page.
