National, state, local elections in a frenzy

Election Day 2000 is shaping up to be a historical day in McCulloch County. According to election officials in the County Clerk’s office, if early voting results are any indicator of the expected turnout for Tuesday’s election, poll judges and attendees are going to be busy. With one day left of early voting, 953 early votes have been cast including 113 ballots by mail. A brief search of election history shows that this election could go down as one of the most highly attended elections in McCulloch County history. Local elections that have sparked heavy politicking are the races for County Attorney and for County Commissioner for Precinct 3. Write in candidates Ginger Treadwell and Ed Carrithers are making last minute campaign pushes in hopes of sealing their name as the next County Attorney. Most election ballots will be identical with the exception of persons in District 21, Precinct 101. Persons in that district will have U.S. representative candidates Lamar Smith (R), Jim Green (D) and C.W. Steinbrecher (I) as their choices. All other voters are in District 11 and their choices for U.S. representative are Ramsey Farley (R), Chet Edwards (D) and Mark Swanstrom (I). Persons in Precinct 1 will see Joe Johnson running unopposed for County Commissioner and persons in Precinct 3 will choose between Nelson Solsbery and Dick Marsden.
