Early voting for primaries begins Tuesday
Selection of local, state and federal candidates begins here Tuesday, Feb. 18 when in-person voting gets under way at the Gillespie County Courthouse preceding the March 4 political primary elections.
Two ballots, one Republican and the other Democratic, will be available through Friday, Feb. 28, on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for qualified Gillespie County voters in the county commissioners’ courtroom.
The top primary vote recipients will be their party nominees in the 2014 general election, scheduled later this year on Nov. 4.
A special weekend voting session will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Sunday, Feb. 23, from 1-3 p.m.
Much of the focus will be on the Republican candidates for local offices, though most are running unopposed in the primary. Running for re-election will be the following incumbents: County Judge Mark Stroeher, County Clerk Mary Lynn Rusche, District Clerk Jan Davis, County Treasurer Laura Lundquist and County Surveyor Carey Bonn.
Also on the ballot are incumbent County Commissioners Billy Roeder, Pct. 2, and Donnie Schuch, Pct. 4.
Carl E. Schoessow has filed for re-election as Justice of the Peace, Pct. 2.
