If you didn't vote in the general election, you can still vote in the run-off, provided you're eligible/registered.

This site is a useful guide.

Mayor, Districts 1,2, 6, 8, 9 and 10 all have run-offs.

We'll be lucky if 5 percent of the citizens bother to vote. Apathy will be particularly high in Districts 3-5 and 7. District 5 was where Medina campaigned the hardest and he didn't make the runoff.

That's all part of why runoff races have unpredictable outcomes.

Low turnout is a consistent problem. However, San Antonio has been unique in that usually more people vote in the run-off than vote in the general elections. This year the rate was about 11% - more voters than in 2015. Still abysmally low, but we have an upward trend.

This map shows the breakdown by precinct, but just gives # of votes rather than %. Hopefully the number of council run-offs will also mean better voter turnout. http://www.expressnews.com/news/loca...photo-12859201

Here's an article about the mayoral candidates:
