For the May 24 Texas party primary runoff elections, Montague County voting locations will be condensed from 10 to six.
The commissioners court gave approval for the consolidation plan presented by Elections Administrator Brandi Shipman at Monday’s meeting.
Shipman explains due to the small number of races on the ballot, the Texas Secretary of State is allowing the locations be reduced by up to half. There will five runoffs in the Republican ticket and one in the Democratic.
There is only one county runoff and that is in the Republican ticket for precinct one commissioner race between Roy Darden, Bowie, and Stephen Kirkland, Sunset.
In the county the number of countywide voting locations was moved from 10 to six. See the full story in the mid-week News.
