Voting Begins in Contra Costa County For June 2018 Primary Election


Early voting for five primary runoff elections in southern Denton County begins on Monday. Hours for early voting will be from 8:30 5 p.m.

Races headed to a runoff include: County Commissioner Precinct 4 (R), District Clerk (R), Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 (R), Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 (R), and State Representative District 64 (D). A primary election such as the state has not seen in many years is June 26, and its outcome will do much to determine the state's direction in the decade ahead.
