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.
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.
During early voting, 1,280 LISD voters checked in at polling sites, according to Llano County Elections Administrator Andrea Wilson. This is roughly 8.2 percent of the 15,611 registered voters within the district. According to Wilson, the number is already over the 1,098 total votes cast in the May 2021 elections.
