Voting Tuesday in primary runoff

By Brian Knox | Published Wednesday, May 24, 2014

After Tuesday, the November general election ballot should be set.

But before that can happen, a few races in the Democratic and Republican primary elections still need to be decided.

The Republican ballot includes the lieutenant governor, attorney general, commissioner of agriculture and railroad commissioner races.

Democratic voters still must settle on candidates for U.S. Senator and commissioner of agriculture.

Election day voting for the runoff is 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at four consolidated polling locations around the county. Precincts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 22 will vote at Decatur City Hall, 201 E. Walnut. Precincts 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 18 and 19 will vote at Assumption Catholic Center, 1305 S. Deer Park in Decatur. Precincts 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 will vote at Bridgeport High School, One Maroon Dr. in Bridgeport. Precincts 20, 23, 24, 25 and 27 will vote at Boyd Community Center, 420 E. Morton Ave. in Boyd.

Registered voters who did not vote in the primary election may vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary runoff. However, if you voted in a primary, you can only vote in the same party’s primary runoff election.

Sample ballots for both the Democratic and Republican primary runoff election can be found on the Wise County Election’s website, www.votewise.org.

A week of early voting ended Friday in Wise County with 630 votes cast in the Republican primary runoff and 24 in the Democratic primary runoff.
