ElectionsThe Cameron County March Primary Elections for the Democratic and Republican parties may have passed Tuesday, but a number of posts remain in contention.

There are at least seven runoff elections are now slated in Cameron County races. Cameron County Elections Administrator Christopher J. Davis reminded Wednesday that a candidate must get at least 50 percent plus one vote in order to avoid a runoff election—this in races of three candidates or more.

“In a race with two people, obviously the winner takes all,” explained Davis. “In a race with three or more, you need a majority of the vote to avoid a runoff.”
