Election Dates and Polling Locations Finalized for Upcoming Primary Election

Show more

Rebekah Callaway spoke to the Robertson County Commissioners at their most recent court regarding the upcoming primary election. Callaway submitted the final list of offices up for election, polling locations and voting dates and she noted some minor changes in her presentation. Two polling locations have changed, one in Hearne and one in Franklin. For precinct 23, the new polling location is at the VFW hall, located at 205 N. Market St in Hearne, directly across from the Sonic. The space is larger than the former location and is easy to access. In Franklin, the voters of Precinct 4 will no longer be voting at the Pridgeon Center, but instead will be able to cast their votes at The Worship Center, located at 231 Cooks Lane. Early voting begins on Tuesday, February 20 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Early voting runs through March 1 with final voting day on March 5. This year voters will even have the option of voting on a Sunday this year, as the Elections Office, located at 601 Hearne St in Franklin will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday, February 25. The Republican primary ballot has 23 offices to vote on, while the Democratic ballot only has 12. This is due to the fact that there are no Democrats running for county offices, so in order to vote on those county seats, then people must vote in the Republican primary.  Voting in a primary does not limit your vote in the general election and it does not register you with a particular party. However, Texas is a closed primary state, which means that voters can only vote in one party’s primary, so a voter can only weigh in on one or the other ballot.
