Filing period opens for May elections
The fiing period opens Wednesday (Jan. 16) for elections that will be held on Saturday, May 4 unless incumbents seeking re-election draw no challengers. Elections are planned for Lipan City Council, Lipan School Board, the city of Cresson and the board of the Acton Municipal Utility District (AMUD). The filing period runs through Friday, Feb. 15. The last day to register to vote is Thursday, April 4. Anyone who has not voted in the last two federal election cycles should check on the status of their voter registration since those rolls are periodically purged. To confirm registration visit the Texas Secretary of State's website at www.sos.state.tx.us. The phone number for the county's Elections Administration office is 817-408-2525.
