LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - The names on the ballots are set for all-but-one race in upcoming elections for the City of Laredo.

The election November 4 will include races for four positions.

Seven city positions are up for re-election, but some incumbents are running unopposed. Incumbents for municipal court judge, council member district two and six have no opponents.

The ballot will include proposition questions for the approval of a natatorium and a sports complex.

The ballot will also include a question on the recall for district seven council member Jorge Vera.

Contested races will proceed for the positions of mayor council member district one, three and eight.

The deadline for the district eight race has not yet come. The filing deadline for that special election is Thursday.

Laredo City Secretary Gustavo Guevara said the ballot order was decided Monday.

"Each candidate or a representative of the candidate would draw a number, and whatever number they got, that would be the place on the ballot," said Guevara.

"As they will appear on the ballot, they are now in the website of the City of Laredo, and you can see the names of the candidates and the way they will appear on the ballot."

Guevara said half the candidates now running filed within the last four days of the Monday deadline.

He said the three unopposed candidates for city office will also be appearing on the ballot.

This election voters can expect to see races for federal, state, county, Laredo Community College and school district positions.
