Llano County Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Linda Ballard won the coin toss Thursday, securing her another term in office.
Ballard and challenger Steve Lange both received 371 votes in the May 27 Republican Party Runoff following the March 4 primary. A mandatory recount yielded the same result and Llano County Republican Chair Jim Simmons was on hand to officiate the “casting of the lots” to determine a winner.
