Political signs for the 2022 midterm election were just beginning to make an appearance at Texas Tech University in Marble Falls at about 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7, the day before Election Day.

Election Day for the 2022 midterms is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. No ballots will be counted until polls close on Tuesday. A little more than 38 percent of Burnet County’s registered voters and 42.6 percent of those in Llano County already cast their ballots during early voting or by mail.
Voters will decide on a full slate of statewide offices from governor to the Texas Board of Education.
Only one countywide seat in Llano County is open and opposed. Republican Cheryl Regmund faces Libertarian Joe Burnes for county treasurer.
All other countywide and precinct races in both Burnet and Llano counties were decided in the March primaries.
Two local issues are on some ballots. Sunrise Beach Village voters will decide whether to set up an Emergency Services District to help fund the volunteer fire department. Horseshoe Bay residents will vote on an $8 million bond to build a new City Hall.
Races for the state Senate and House of Representatives are on ballots in both counties.
Redrawn Texas and congressional district lines mean new state and U.S. representatives for Burnet County. Republican Ellen Troxclair and Democrat Pam Baggett face off for the open District 19 seat in the Texas House, while Republican John Carter, who is unopposed for District 31, will become the new U.S. representative for Burnet County. U.S. Rep. John Williams has moved to an adjacent district.
In Llano County, Republican incumbent state Rep. Andres S. Murr and Democrat Jose P. Herrera are battling for the District 53 seat in the state House. Llano County residents will keep their U.S. representative, August Pfluger, who is unopposed for District 11.
Sizes are limited to 18 inches by 14 inches, or 3 square-feet. Candidates may only post two signs per polling place no sooner than 24 hours before polling begins on Election Day. Signs must be removed within 24 hours of polls closing.
All signs must be ground-mounted with wire stakes. T-posts are not allowed.
Burnet County voters may vote in any location no matter where they reside in the county.
