County's early voting numbers down



• Voters in Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 have an option on the ballot that, if approved, would legalize the sale of beer or wine for off-premise consumption. 

• Voters in the Central Community VFD and Adell-Whitt VFD fire protection areas have a measure on their ballot that, if approved, would create an emergency services district, allowing the district to levy a tax of up to 10 cents per $100 valuation to provide fire and emergency services protection for the area. 

• Voters in unincorporated Millsap and ESD No. 7 areas have two propositions on the ballot that, if both are approved in both areas, would add the Millsap fire protection district to the emergency services district, allowing ESD No. 7 to collect taxes and fund fire and emergency services in the Millsap fire protection area. 

• Voters in County Commissioner Precinct 3 have two options on the ballot to replace outgoing commissioner John Roth: Republican candidate Larry Walden and Democratic candidate Sandra Harrison. 

• Voters in Brock ISD have two contested races on the ballot. Place 7 incumbent Cody B. Lane is being challenged by former Brock Junior High School counselor Lewana Hensarling Phillips. Jay Brainard, Travis Faulkner and Charles Luke are all seeking to represent Place 5. 

• Voters in Parker County also have the opportunity to choose their Texas House District 61 representative. Green Party candidate Matthew Britt is challenging incumbent Republican Phil King.
