Elections: Showdown April 13 in Burnet County GOP runoff

BURNET — The Burnet County elections administrator is reminding voters a Republican runoff is April 13 between two candidates vying for the Burnet County district clerk seat.

Sheila Frazier, court coordinator for the 33rd state District Court, will face Chief Deputy District Clerk Casie Wills for the position.

The winner will take on Democratic challenger Cynthia Chisolm during the Nov. 2 midterm election.

 

"If you are a registered voter in Burnet County, and you did not vote in the Democratic Party Primary on March 2, you may vote in the Republican runoff election," County Elections Administrator Barbara Agnew said.

Six polling locations will be open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. on Election Day April 13.
