PALMVIEW–Eighteen people are registered to vote at a one-bedroom home at 205 Minvera St. in Palmview according to a list of registered voters released by Hidalgo County.
Meanwhile, eight people are registered to vote at 403 Palma Vista Drive, the furniture store where Albino Villarreal is registered to vote. Villarreal said he should be the only one registered at the store. He previously has indicated he sleeps at the store for security purposes.
Villarreal is one of four members of the Palmview Leadership slate of candidates in the May 10 city election. His opponent, Ricky Villarreal, has questioned Albino’s residency status, even taking the issue to court, but it was dismissed.
Two women named Claudia Villarreal are registered to vote from the business, but Albino Villarreal said he did not recognize the name. However, both Albino Villarreal’s wife and daughter are named Claudia. Other people registered at the store are Alisha Monik Camacho, Abigail Alexis Flores, Marissa Flores, Manuel Galvan and Leonardo Garza.
