After neither candidate was able to secure the necessary majority, Russ Boles and Bobby Seiferman will face off again in a runoff to determine who will serve as the Republican candidate for the Williamson County Precinct 4 commissioner in November.
At the time this story was posted, two polling locations in Williamson County had only been partially counted, but elections department staff indicated a runoff would most likely take place.
According to the Williamson County Elections Department, a candidate must receive 50 percent of the ballots cast, plus one vote. At press time, Boles had received 2,431 votes, or nearly 39 percent. Seiferman had 1,595 votes, or almost 26 percent. The other ballots cast were for the other GOP candidates, Heather Peal and David Marek, who had 1,368 and 857 votes, respectively.
Because no candidate received more than 50 of the vote, Boles and Seiferman will take part in a runoff election scheduled for May 22. The winner that night will be up for election against the sole Democratic candidate for the Precinct 4 position, Carlos Salinas, in November.
