Elections

2014

The city of San Antonio, Texas held a nonpartisan special election for the District 2 seat of the San Antonio City Council in conjunction with the state and federal general elections on November 4, 2014. The filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was August 21, 2014.[1]

The special election was held to fill the District 2 seat vacated by Ivy R. Taylor. In July 2014, Taylor was appointed as Mayor of San Antonio when President Barack Obama tapped former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to serve as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In August 2014, Keith A. Toney was appointed to hold the position until the special election in November.

The candidates were Toney, Alan E. Warrick, Norris Tyrone Darden, Ntando McIntosh and Elmo Aycock.[2][3] Because no candidate received more than 50% percent of the vote in the election on November 4, the top two vote-getters - Toney and Warrick - advanced to a runoff election on December 9, 2014. Warrick defeated Toney in the runoff election.[4][5]
