With the vacancy of the Imperial Irrigation District 1 seat, a special election for the seat was initiated earlier this year, with voting to take place in June. The candidates for the seat are Tony S. Gallegos, Blake Miles, Juanita Salas, and John Edgar “Ed” Snively.

This is not a countywide election and voters must be registered within Imperial Irrigation District Division 1 to be eligible to vote at this election. See your District Division here.

In addition to the polls opening on Tuesday, June 6, District 1 residents can also submit their vote during the preceding weekend, June 3 and 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Registrar of Voters office at 940 W. Main St., Ste 206 in El Centro.
