It will only be a matter of weeks before voters in Hunt County join others across the state to begin casting ballots for the November general election.
The Hunt County Commissioners Court is scheduled today to take a step in preparing for the election, by ratifying the judges and alternate judges for elections for the the next two years.
Hunt County Elections Administrator Mina Cook is presenting the item before the commissioners as part of the regular agenda, starting at 10 a.m. inside the Auxiliary Courtroom, 2700 Johnson Street in Greenville.
The Texas gubernatorial candidates’ Facebook pages and Twitter feeds are prime opportunities for the hopefuls to take their messages directly to supporters and other interested parties, allowing them to showcase their latest announcements and provide forums for comments and feedback.
An overflow crowd of potential voters was in attendance in downtown Greenville Monday night, to hear from many of the candidates seeking Republican Party nominations during the March 4 primary elections.
The Republican candidates for lieutenant governor do not seem worried about Democratic challengers and independent voters, or particularly concerned about whether their public conversations and debates fuel the Democrats’ election-year motif of a war on women.
If they were, they would not be talking like this. You would not have seen what you saw during the debate early this week as they all raced to the conservative end of the pool, hoping to win the hearts of the Republican voters they will face in the primary election in March.
