Tuesday deadline to register for runoff

Tuesday (July 2) is the final day to register to vote in time to participate in the July 31 runoff elections.

Milam County voters will choose a sheriff that day in a Republican Primary runoff.

Incumbent David Greene faces challenger Greg Kouba. They were the top two vote-getters in a three-man primary race May 29.

There is no Democratic candidate for sheriff on the November general election ballot.
