Bertram City Councilman Adam Warden will become the next mayor of Bertram, while Jane Scheidler joins Kim Klose on the City Council in final but unofficial results from the Saturday, May 5, election.

In Burnet, voters approved 16 of 17 proposed City Charter amendments on the ballot, most by a very healthy margin. And in Granite Shoals, newcomers will take all three spots on the Granite Shoals City Council.


Warden, who did not seek re-election to his City Council seat, took a 19-10 lead in absentee and early voting and then coasted to victory on Election Day, winning by a 92-30 margin over Danielle Armknecht.

Burnet County Elections Administrator Doug Ferguson has issued a statement dated today, Aug. 31, outlining court ordered changes in voter identification rules for Texas voters in the Nov. 8 election.

“My office is working to make sure all the voters in Burnet County are ready to cast a ballot,” said Ferguson in preface. “These new options for voters who cannot obtain a photo ID are currently in place and will be used in the November Election.”

Texas voter identification law is not a new debate and new changes have had a long road coming.

The law that had taken effect in 2011 was struck down in court and placed on hold in October 2014.
