Election Day is May 6
Election Day for residents of Burnet and Llano counties is Saturday, May 6. Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. in both counties.
Despite several contested races in Burnet County, voters showed up in modest numbers during early voting. However, Llano County voters came out in force to decide on the Llano Independent School District bond election.
Nine of 10 Burnet County entities are holding elections this year, most notably contested mayoral and city council positions in Marble Falls and Granite Shoals, and the Place 3 seat on the Marble Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees. This is one of the largest local election years in recent history, according to Burnet County Elections Administrator Doug Ferguson.
The Burnet County Elections Office reported 1,314 in-person ballots and 69 absentee ballots cast during the early voting window of April 24-May 2. This amounts to about 4 percent of Burnet County’s 36,342 registered voters.
It is important to note that not all of the county’s registered voters have the opportunity to vote in every election taking place. The 1,314 in-person ballots are spread across Marble Falls, Granite Shoals, Burnet, Meadowlakes, Bertram, Highland Haven, Cottonwood Shores, Marble Falls ISD, and Burnet Consolidated ISD.
In the May 2021 election, 2,156 out of 21,113, or 10.2 percent, of Burnet County voters participated.
