During the drawing for offices up for election, a numbered checker was placed in a bag and selected at random for each candidate.
The deadline to file for the March primary was Dec. 9. All candidates in the Llano County races filed with the Republican Party.
Dan Mills, the two-term 424thDistrict Judge, faces a potentially stern challenge from attorney Evan Stubbs. Mills will appear first on the Llano County ballot.
The 424th judicial district is comprised of Burnet, Llano, Blanco and San Saba counties.
Mills has challenged Stubbs’ eligibility to run for the 424th judgeship, contending his opponent has not met residency requirements.
Stubbs has responded that he has met the residency requirements and stands ready to defend his eligibility if it is formally called into question.
Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace stands as the most contested county position. Challenging incumbent Linda Ballard, who will appear third on the ballot, are Steve Lange (4), Les Daugherty (2), Shelly Comerford (5) and Tim McCray (1).
