CORRECTED: Write-ins officially throw their hat in the ring in JP 1, County Clerk races
EDITOR’S NOTE: The July 26 edition of the Lockhart Post-Register contained an error. Aurora Rhoda Chavira, a Democrat, is also a candidate in the Caldwell County Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 race. The Post-Register did not mention her in the story that printed on Page 4A of the newspaper and regrets the error.

Schawe said the two were indeed the first to register as write-ins.
