A runoff election occurs when no candidate in a race receives more than 50 percent of the vote. The top two vote-getters in each race advance to a runoff.
After the March 6 primary elections, the races for the Guadalupe County precincts 2 and 4 commissioners seats will result in a runoff election May 22.
In the Precinct 2 race, Republican candidates Randall K. Herzog and Drew Engelke will face off in the runoff election. There are no Democratic candidates seeking office for this seat.
In the Precinct 4 race, incumbent Judy Cope and Daniel Kearns will also compete in a runoff election. The winner will face off against Democratic candidate Rebecca “Becca” Tucker, who was uncontested in the primary election.
A large portion of Comal County falls within U.S. House District 21. In that race, a runoff election will take place between Republican candidates Chip Roy and Matt McCall. On the Democratic side, a runoff will also be held for candidates Joseph Kopser and Mary Street Wilson.
