Notice to 2020 Llano County Republican Primary Candidates

Notice to 2020 Llano County Republican Primary Candidates


The time period to file your Application for a Place on the Republican Party General Primary Ballot is November 9 to December 9, 2019.  The filing deadline is 6pm on December 9, 2019.  Failure to file within this time period will bar you from being listed on the 2020 Republican Party General Primary Ballot.

You file your Application and the requisite fees (or a Petition in Lieu of a Filing Fee) with me, the Chairman of the Llano County Republican Party.  Do not submit your Application prior to November 9 as it will be “Rejected”, pursuant to State Law, and you will have to redo the Application. Please carefully review your Application prior to submitting it to make sure it is complete in all respects. Incomplete or erroneously completed Applications also must be “Rejected.”  Accordingly, you may wish to have someone else also carefully review your Application prior to submitting it.  When you are ready to submit your Application, please do the following:

  1. Call or text me that you are ready to submit your Application and I will arrange a time and place to meet you;
  2. You will submit your Originals to me and you should keep a copy for yourself;
  3. If you are paying the filing fee, please make your check payable to the “Llano County Republican Party”. Your check and your Application must be submitted together;
  4. If you are submitting a Petition in Lieu of Filing Fees, again, submit the Originals to me and keep a copy for yourself. Your Petition and your Application must also be submitted together;
  5. I will submit any Petitions in Lieu of Filing Fees to our County Elections Office to also review the signatures;
  6. Within five (5) business days, I will advise you via email whether your Application has been “Accepted” or “Rejected.” If it is rejected, the reasons will be stated and you must reapply if you still want to be on the ballot. Please be sure to provide me with your email so you may receive communication from me and from the Texas Secretary of State’s Office regarding your Application.
  7. Once your Application is Accepted, I will upload your information into the Texas Secretary of State’s system, and you will be notified in writing that that has been done. My goal is to upload that information within 24 hours of the time of acceptance.

My contact information is as follows:  Douglas W. Sanders, 201 Long Mountain, Horseshoe Bay, Texas 78657; telephone: (210)-601-9333; email:

Pursuant to State Law, notice is hereby given that I will be at the above location at 6pm on December 9, 2019.

In closing, thank you for your interest in being a candidate in the upcoming Republican Party Primary and please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.
