Llano election results

In similar fashion to their neighbors in Burnet County, the 5,985 voters casting ballots in Llano County's March 1 Super Tuesday Republican Primary also favored presidential candidate Ted Cruz by 2,161 votes (36.71%) over Donald J. Trump, 1,977 votes (33.59%.)

And, among the 807 total Democratic voters in Llano County, the majority chose presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, 512 votes (64.48%,) over Bernie Sanders, who garnered 267 votes (33.63%.) The remainder of the six Democratic presidential candidates received fewer than 10 votes apiece.

In locally-contested races, there were many clear-cut winners, as well as several expected runoff situations (if the top candidates did not gather at least 50.1% or more of the votes for that position.) In those instances, only the top two vote getters will go head-to-head in the runoff election.

Secretary of State shares voting resources

Voting season in Texas starts Tuesday, Feb. 16, and Texas Secretary of State Carlos Cascos wants registered voters to be prepared as they head to the polls. Early voting for the primary election begins Tuesday, Feb. 16, and all registered voters are eligible to vote early. Early voting ends Feb. 26.

This year, Texas could play an important role in nominating presidential candidates on March 1 as a Super Tuesday state. A record 14.2 million voters are registered in Texas.

The Secretary of State’s office has several resources to help prepare voters for the polls, including:

· VoteTexas.gov, a one-stop hub for all voting information, such as when, where and how to vote, and what rights voters have. It also has information on the seven forms of approved photo ID voters must bring to the polls with them.
