Early voting underway for city and school district elections


Early voting is underway for the city and school general election May 4. It started April 22 and runs through April 30.

Many Highland Lakes elections have already been decided because only one person filed for a particular race. Voters in the cities of Burnet, Cottonwood Shores, Granite Shoals, and Marble Falls as well as the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District and Marble Falls ISD don’t have any races to decide at the polls this election.

Burnet County elections:

In Bertram, there are three at-large city alderman positions on the ballot. Three incumbents are up re-election: Mike Dickinson, Pat Turner, and Jean Worrell. Three challengers are also vying for a spot on at the dais: Stephanie Fitzsimmons, Tammy Scott, and John Valadez.

Meadowlakes voters have a decision in two City Council seats. In Place 4, Steve Newton and Eddie Wise are running. Place 5 also drew two candidates: incumbent Bob Brown and challenger Gerry Mason.

Early voting for Meadowlakes and Bertram elections takes place at the Burnet County Courthouse, 220 S. Pierce St. in Burnet, and the Marble Falls Courthouse South Annex, 810 Steve Hawkins Parkway.

Burnet County early voting hours are 8 a.m.-5p.m. April 22-24, 26, and 30 and 7 a.m.-7 p.m April 25 and 29.

Llano County elections:

In the city of Llano, Gail Lang is running for re-election, and though no one filed in time to run against her, there is a write-in spot on the ballot. For the two full-term alderman spots, four people are on the ballot: Kara Gilliland, Roper Mikulenka, Tory Virdell, and Larry Sawyer.

Two people are running for the unexpired alderman term: Kelli Tudyk and Faron Miller.

While Llano ISD has no contested board races (four unopposed races), school district voters still have a matter at the ballot box. LISD has a $10 million bond for “school facilities and buses” going before voters this spring.

Early voting for Llano County elections is held at the Llano County Library, 102 E. Haynie in Llano; Kingsland Branch Library, 125 W. Polk St. in Kingsland; and the Horseshoe Bay Property Owners’ Association, 107 Twilight in Horseshoe Bay.

The Llano library early voting times are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. April 22 and 29 and 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. April 23-26 and 30. The Kingsland library hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. April 22-26 and 29-30. Early voting hours at the Horseshoe Bay Property Owners’ Association are 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. April 22-26 and 29-30.
