Highland Lakes voters head to polls March 4

FROM STAFF REPORTS

BURNET — With early voting wrapping up Feb. 28 for the Republican and Democratic primaries, Highland Lakes residents get one more shot at casting their ballots March 4.

Citizens will find many contested races, especially in the Republican primaries, from the national level to the local races. The winners of the March primaries then head to the November general election. Some candidates might not face anyone on the opposing ticket in November, thus making the March primaries a very important event.

Several races feature three or more candidates, possibly leading to run-off elections.

The March 4 primary election locations are throughout the Highland Lakes, depending on where you live. You can find your voting precinct listed on your voter’s registration card. Remember, the voting precinct is not the same as your county commissioner precinct.
