Del Mar College (DMC) District residents cast their votes during early voting and on Nov. 3 for three Board of Regents (BOR) seats on the 2020 general election ballot. Those seats included District 4 and two At-large seats. The three elected individuals will serve a six-year term, which ends in 2026.

Preliminary election results tabulated by the Elections Department overseen by the Nueces County Clerk are as follows:

  • District 4: Laurie Turner
  • At-large: Nick Adame
  • At-large: Carol Scott

Del Mar College election results are based on plurality with the candidate(s) receving the most votes in each race winning that seat.

Canvassing of the votes is tentatively scheduled for Friday, Nov. 13. The three individuals––Turner and incumbents Adame and Scott––will be sworn-in during the Board’s Dec. 8 regular monthly meeting.

The Del Mar College District includes all the area in the Calallen, Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff, Tuloso-Midway and West Oso Independent School Districts. The DMC Board of Regents includes nine regents in a modified single-member district configuration. Five regents represent specific geographic districts while four serve At-large.

A link to the College District map (PDF file) showing the boundaries for these board seats is posted on the Board of Regents Election page.
