Deadline Monday to register to vote in primary runoffs

GREENVILLE — Republican voters in Hunt County still have some choices to make, as there will be several county and state level races on the July 31 GOP runoff election ballot.

Local Democratic Party voters also have to decide who will be their candidate for the United States Senate in the November general election.

Monday is the last day to register to vote in the runoff, with early voting scheduled July 23-27.

Individuals who voted in the May 29 Democratic Party primary election will not be allowed to vote in the Republican Party runoff and vice versa. Anyone who did not vote in either of the primaries can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary runoff elections.

The runoff contest for Hunt County Tax Assessor Collector will be between Randy Wineinger and John Clark. Wineinger received 4,157 votes (48.34 percent) in last month’s Republican primary, while Clark received 1,925 votes (22.39 percent). As none of the four candidates seeking the office received more than 50 percent of the vote, the two candidates receiving the most votes moved to a runoff.

The runoff will likely decide who will be the next tax assessor, as there are no Democratic Party, independent, third party or potential write-in candidates in the running for the November 6 general election.

Eric Evans and Mike Pierce will face each other in the GOP runoff for Hunt County Commissioner Precinct 1. Evans gained 898 votes (36.44 percent) to Pierce’s 764 votes (31.01 percent). The runoff winner will face Democrat Jerry Minter in November.

Incumbent Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Place 1 Sandy Lane Berger will face Wayne Money in the runoff. Berger received 1,775 votes (32.33 percent) to Money’s 1,578 votes (28.74 percent).

There will also be a runoff on July 31 for Hunt County Republican Party chairman. Incumbent David Hale collected 3,406 votes (47.8 percent) Tuesday to David Renshaw’s 2,712 votes (38.06 percent).

There are three statewide Republican Party runoff races on July 31, including the contest for United States Senate between David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz.

Voters will choose the Republican nominee for Railroad Commissioner between Christi Craddick and Warren Chisum and for an unexpired Railroad Commission seat between Barry Smitherman and Greg Parker.

There is also a Republican Party runoff election race for Justice Supreme Court Place 4 between David Medina and John Devine.

There are no county races in the July 31 Democratic Party runoff election, which features a contest for the nominee for United States Senate between Paul Sadler and Grady Yarbrough.
