Today is Election Day for Primary

by | Mar 1, 2022 | Latest

Residents will have the opportunity to vote in the Texas primary election, Tuesday, March 1.

Farmersville is located in Collin County and will be eligible to vote at any of the Election Day polling locations.

Residents in Collin County can vote at First Baptist Church Branch, located at 7011 FM 546 and the Princeton Community Center, located at 416 N. Fourth Street. Collin College Farmersville Campus, located at 501 S. Collin Parkway, is also a voting location.

All polling places will be open from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Texas is an open primary state, meaning voters cast their ballot in one, but not both, of the primary races but are not required to register their party affiliation. The winner of each party’s race will face each other for the seat in the November elections.

Voters are asked to cast their ballot for several state and county elections. They will also vote in a primary for United States Representative District 3 at the federal level.

At the state level, Gov. Greg Abbott faces Rick Perry, Chad Prather, Danny Harrison, Allen B. West, Don Huffines, Kandy Kaye Horn and Paul Belew. Rich Wakeland, Beto O’Rourke, Joy Diaz, Inocencio (Inno) Barrientez and Michael Cooper all seek the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick also faces several challengers for his seat. Todd M. Bullis, Aaron Sorrells, Trayce Bradford, Daniel Miller and Zack Vance aim to replace Patrick in the role. In the Democratic primary, Carla Brailey, Michelle Beckley and Mike Collier face each other for the position.

Voters will also cast a ballot for attorney general, commissioner of the general land office, commissioner of agriculture, railroad commissioner, district attorney and the State Board of Education District 12 position.

County elections include county judge, currently held by Chris Hill and is being challenged by Lee Finley. Joshua Murray and David M. Smith are running for county judge in the Democratic primary.
District Clerk Debbie Lytle is being challenged by Mike Gould, Laura Trujillo-Jenks and Lynne Finley. Alyssa Dequeant is running unopposed for district clerk in the Democratic primary.

County Clerk Stacey Kemp is running unopposed, as is County Commissioner Cheryl Williams, Precinct 2, who represents Princeton residents.

Along with several state and county judge positions, residents will also vote for their district’s state representatives and senators.

Republican voters will have 10 propositions on their ballot concerning items such as the southern border, property taxes and COVID-19 vaccine mandates among others.
