Early voting for runoff elections in Harris County will begin Wednesday, County Clerk Stan Stanart announced.
Eligible voters can cast ballots at nine Houston locations on weekdays through Dec. 5.
There are three elections slated for the Dec. 9 Joint Runoff election, for which Stanart's office said more than 220,000 Harris County residents eligible to vote early and on election day.
There are two candidates -- Pretta Stallworth and Eugene Pack -- vying for a trustee position at Houston Community College. About 90,000 Harris County residents are eligible to cast ballots in that runoff.
The Houston Independent School District, meanwhile, has two trustee elections slated after no candidates in two districts failed to garner more than 50 percent of the vote during the initial Nov. 9 election that featured 19 candidates for six open positions on the 9-person board.
In District 1, voters will decide between teacher Elizabeth Santos and analyst Gretchen Himsl.
In District III, Jesse A. Rodriguez, a customer care manager for United Airlines, and Bellaire High School Assistant Principal Sergio Lira are on the ballot.
