Numbers for Republican voters increased Thursday as 168 voted early in the May Primary Runoff election. Ten Democrats voted in state-wide runoff elections. Total votes for the first four days: Republicans 589; Democrats 39. Early voting in the Primary Runoff Election continues until 5 p.m. today, Friday, May 18, 2018. Early voting takes place at the Justice of the Peace Courtroom, 128 Jefferson Street in Sulphur Springs. Tuesday, May 22 is Primary Runoff Election Day with voting places open 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Hopkins County registered voters may cast ballots at any of the voting places on that day. Voting places will include the Lutheran Church on Texas Street, the Courthouse downtown, Morning Chapel Missionary Baptist Church on Fuller Street, and League Street Church of Christ and Como-Pickton School on Highway 11 E. Republicans are voting for nominees for Hopkins County Treasurer and Commissioner Precinct 2. Since there are not Democrat challengers, those who receive the nomination will be the only ones for those offices on the ballot in November. Democrats are voting in state runoff races only.
