The May 6 election for the City of Muleshoe, Muleshoe Independent School District and Muleshoe Area Hospital District will have only one contest on the ballot.

Dusty Stone and Robby Bomer will face off in the election for the District 2 position on the Muleshoe ISD Board of Trustees.

“All the rest have been canceled because of no opposition,” said City Secretary Zanea Carpenter. “Only voters in District 2 will vote.”

Early voting takes place weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through May 2 at City Hall. The election takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at City Hall.

Incumbents Jeff King, District 3, and Jesus Tovar, District 5, are both running unopposed for the MISD Board of Trustees.

Earl Behrends, District 3 City Council member, did not sign up for re-election. Austin Atchley is running unopposed for the District 3 City Council spot, and District 4 incumbent Gary Parker is also running unopposed.

Incumbents Allen Smyer, District 2, and Gayle Richerson, District 4, are both running unopposed for MAHD.

Bailey County elections will take place Nov. 7, 2023, with early voting taking place from Oct. 23 until Nov. 3. Since no one is running this year, only constitutional measures will be on the ballot, according to Bailey County Judge Secretary Rebecca Beall.
