ERATH COUNTY (January 14, 2016) — With just over a month until early elections in Erath County beginning for the March 1 Primary Election, Erath County Elections Coordinator Susan Driskill said the early voting locations had been set and the Erath County Republican Party has drawn for all their ballot placings.

Interesting note: Driskill confirmed on Friday that not a single Democrat was signed up to run in any county election. This means that ALL local elections will be decided in the March 1 Primary Election. Driskill said this isn’t the first year the local elections have not seen a Democrat, including the last county election.

With that in mind, here are the local elections that are uncontested:

• District Attorney, 266th Judicial District – Alan Nash

• Erath County Attorney – Lisa Pence

• Tax Assessor-Collector – Jennifer Carey

• Erath County Commissioner, Pct. 1 – Dee Stephens

• Erath County Constable, Pct. 2 – Lee Roy Gaitan

Contested races are listed below:

• Erath County Sheriff – Leslie ‘Tish’ Lecroy, Clell D. Murrary and Tommy Bryant (incumbent)

• Erath County Commissioner, Pct. 2 – Dale Wesley Dove and Joe Brown (incumbent)

• Erath County Constable, Pct. 1, 3, 4 – Jimmy Towe, Jason Schipper and Scott Daily (Larry Ciccarrelli is retiring at the end of his term)
