Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 4.

City and school elections could be cancelled if no one files to challenge any incumbents seeking re-election.

Those seats currently are held by Rose Myers and Mickey Parson, respectively.

Myers has only been in office a few months.

She was elected to fill the time remaining for the seat vacated by Nin Hulett, who ran for mayor and was elected.

Packets can also be obtained at the city secretary’s office on the second floor of Granbury City Hall, 116 W. Bridge St.
