In Friday’s Herald, unofficial
voting results from the May 29
primary election were reported
based on what had been released
before the newspaper’s deadline.
Results of both Democratic and
Republican ballots were posted
on the Jack County Clerk website
Wednesday evening, after the
editorial deadline for the Herald.
So Democratic results were not
listed in the Friday article. We
apologize if this created confu-
Readers are reminded that in
the primaries, voters are only al-
lowed to vote on a Democratic
or Republican ballot, which lists
only those parties’ candidates. In
the general election Nov. 6, vot-
ers will be allowed to vote the
candidate they wish for office on
a joint-party ballot, regardless of
party affiliation. For this reason,
some vote tallies in the primaries
In Friday’s article, a comment
about the constable’s race was
“there will probably not be a
runoff election.” It was stated
this way due to reporting unof-
ficial results, which require a
closure of a
due to disclosure of a single bal-
lot that was mailed from a soldier
overseas that must be received
by Monday mail call to be con-
sidered in the May 29 primary
election results. If the soldier’s
ballot is received and causes a tie
in the constable race, and neither
candidate relinquishes the office
voluntarily, a runoff election is
required in July.
Of the 853 votes cast Tuesday,
approximately 46 were absentee
votes, about 332 were early votes
and 437 were actual election day
votes. Out of 9,520 registered
Jack County voters, the 853 votes
cast Tuesday represented 8.96
percent of total registered voters.
Democratic candidates on the
Democratic ballot and their Jack
County votes are listed below.
Democratic Presidential candi-
dates included Darcy G. Richard-
son, 7 votes; Bob Ely, 4; Barack
Obama, 44; and John Wolfe, 20.
U.S. Senator candidates Sean
Hubbard, 10 votes; Addie Dainell
Allen, 16; Paul Sadler, 20; and
Grady Yarbrough, 29 votes.

didate Dale Henry received
