Early voting ends at 5 p.m. today (Friday, May 18) at the Somervell County Annex Building, to decide the Republican nominee for Place 2 on the Somervell County Commissioners Court.

The runoff is between Dwayne Johnson and Richard Talavera. The winner of the runoff will be matched against the Democrat nominee, Judy Nawrocki, in the Nov. 6 election.

Election Day for the runoff will be Tuesday, May 22, at the Somervell County Expo Center, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

When no one in the March 6 Primary Election race for Precinct 2 got at least 51 percent of the vote, the runoff was required. Talavera got 274 votes and Johnson received 222 votes. Ramon Bunt was third but is not involved in the runoff.

The current Precinct 2 Commissioner, John Curtis, chose not to run for reelection.
