Commissioner Precincts 101

• Each Texas County is divided into 4 Commissioner Precincts.

• Each Hays County Commissioner's Precinct has about 62.5k residents.

• Each Commissioner's Precinct is represented by an elected official.

• Elections are staggered every two years between EVEN & ODD precincts.

• In 2022, Commissioner's Precincts #2 and #4 are up for election.

• The Commission is responsible for important decisions such as roads and bridges, infrastructure, health care and the environmental impact of growth.

• The 4 elected County Commissioners represent their individual precincts, and are presided over by The Hays County Judge.

• The County “Judge” is not really a judge at all, (which is confusing.)

• Think of the County Judge as the person elected to oversee all Commissioner Precincts and their elected representatives.

• Of the 4 Precincts, only 1 Commissioner is a Democrat.

• The County Judge is also a Democrat. 

• The County Judge has an equal vote to everyone else, so, it’s 3 R’s vs 2 D’s.

•BUT… 2 of the 3 Republican Commissioner seats are up for election in 2022.

• The County Judge seat is also up for election this year. 

IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO VOTE THIS YEAR.
