    Seguin Township will once again be implementing Internet and Telephone Voting for the 2018 Municipal Election in October, 2018.

As the election draws closer we will be including more information about the voting process on this page. In Seguin the Mayor is elected at large, which means all eligible voters choose from the same mayoral candidates when voting.
