Information about Elections August 7, 2014

By B Mostello

In two of the twelve districts for Williamson County Commission, only one candidate was on the ballot for two seats. That was the May 6 Republican primary for local offices.

Everything local has been determined EXCEPT  two Independent candidates who will fill two seats on the Commission in the August 7 general election. On August 7, we will have two primaries—a Republican primary and a Democratic primary. You have to choose one or the other. You cannot vote in both. You are not registered by party affiliation, but on the day of the election you choose in which primary you want to vote. Also, on August 7, there is a general election. The only remaining important thing to be decided is the election of 6 of the 12 members of the school board. These are by district. If you live in Districts 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 you will vote for your representative on the Williamson County school board. If you live in the Franklin Special School District you will elect 3 (or 4) of the 6 members of that board.
