Editor’s Note: The Breckenridge Texan was provided incorrect data for the original version of this article. The mistake was in the number of voters in previous years, and we have removed the incorrect information. However, the information regarding this year’s voter turnout was correct and is included in the story below. The Breckenridge Texan will have an update this weekend after Early Voting wraps up Friday evening.


Local turnout has been slow in Early Voting in the 2024 Primary Election, according to local election officials. By the end of voting on Tuesday, Feb. 27, there had been 512 votes; that means only 9% of the total registered voters in Stephens County had voted.

Although the Republican Primary ballots are mostly the same, the difference between the precincts is the County Commissioner races. David Fambro is running to be re-elected for Precinct 1 County Commissioner, and Will Warren is running to be re-elected for Precinct 3 County Commissioner. Neither has an opponent. In Precincts 2 and 4, the County Commissioners are not up for re-election this year.

Early Voting

Early Voting will continue through Friday, March 1, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

In Stephens County, Early Voting is held only at the courthouse in the lobby. According to the Stephens County Tax Office, to maintain privacy and order, the front doors of the courthouse will be locked during voting hours. However, the east, north, and west doors will remain open. Additionally, a designated curbside parking spot will be available for voters with disabilities. Those voters can call the number provided on the sign for assistance with curbside voting.


Election Day on Tuesday, March 5, will see voters heading to their respective polling places. Notably, there has been a change in the location of Precinct 3 voting. Instead of voting at the Chamber of Commerce building, Precinct 3 voters will now cast their ballots at the new Stephens County Annex Building at 222 N. Baylor Ave.

Stephens County Polling Locations:

• Precinct # 1: First National Bank Tower Room, 101 E. Walker St.

The primary elections encompass county, state and federal offices, including sheriff and county commissioner positions.

In the State Representative District 60 race, incumbent Glenn Rogers is facing challenger Mike Olcott. Meanwhile, State Senator District 10 sees incumbent Phil King running unopposed in the Republican primary, while Andy Morris is unopposed in the Democratic Primary.

In the U.S. Representative 25 Congressional House Race, incumbent Roger Williams faces challengers Vince Crabb and Matthew Lucci in the Republican Primary. There are no Democratic candidates vying for the position.

The primary election will also feature candidates for the Republican and Democratic nominations for U.S. President and Vice President, Senator, and various other offices.

Although none of the local candidates have challengers, if any of the other offices require a runoff, the Primary Runoff Election will be held on May 28.

City of Breckenridge Election

The current Primary Election is for offices at the County level and above. Elections for local political subdivisions, such as the City of Breckenridge Commission, the Stephens Memorial Hospital District Board and Breckenridge Independent School District Board of Trustees will be held in May.

Because there are no opposed candidates for the school board or the hospital district board, those entities will not hold elections.

However, the City Commission has two opposed candidates. That election will be May 4 with Early Voting scheduled for April 22-30. Click here for more details.
