The order of names on the March 1, 2022, Republican primary ballots were determined for Burnet County on Wednesday, Dec. 22, at the party’s official ballot draw. Each candidate reached into a gray bowl held by a volunteer from the audience to pull out a piece of paper with either a one or a two on it.
The festive event, complete with refreshments and holiday decorations, was held in the second-floor courtroom of the Burnet County Courthouse, 220 S. Pierce St. in Burnet, and was run by Burnet County Republican Chair Kara Chasteen.
“The list is not official until the Secretary of State approves it,” she told DailyTrib.com. “All the counties have to have their information turned in and certified, and some counties haven’t even have their ballot draws yet.”
The deadline to give names to the Secretary of State is midnight Thursday, Dec. 23. Official lists will be posted on the state website on Christmas Eve.
“Ours are in and certified,” Chasteen continued.
The order of names on the ballot as determined by the draw are:
