For Justice Court Constable Post 2, incumbent constable W. Lavon Boyd will face challenger Wade Hinshaw, a Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputy. Boyd received 37% of the Primary vote. Hinshaw received 44%.

In Supervisor District 2, incumbent Jerry McGehee will face challenger Keith Lewis, the city’s director of public works. In the Primary, McGehee took 45% of the vote and Lewis took 38%.

In District 3, John David Hart and Ricky Wayne Nations will vie for the seat to be vacated upon Nolan Williamson’s retirement. Hart took 37% and Nations took 43% in the Primary.

Voters who cast Democratic ballots will not vote in the Primary Runoff.

Voters who cast Republican ballots in the Primary — or who did not vote at all — and who live in Lincoln County Supervisor District 2 or 3 can participate, or in Judicial Court District 2, which overlaps much of the two supervisor districts.

Polls will be open 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 29.
