The primary is less than a week away and one of the highly contested races, with three candidates, is a seat for Taylor County Justice of the Peace.
Republican candidates Lydia Long, Mike McAuliffe and John Cummins made their last-minute pitches to win votes.
"Information is power and that's what people need," said Long. She said when she first wanted information about the position when she googled it and found nothing more than the seat-holder's name.
Now she wants to create a stronger web presence to make the justice more easily accessible to the public.
"We can hold hours in the evenings where if you want to come and fight a ticket you can do that after work hours, and we can hold a Saturday court," she said.
McAuliffe said he wants to make it more accessible and especially for students. He said, "What I'd like to do is hold truancy courts on campus." He said that costs schools and uses police officer time because sometimes those kids are out committing crimes.
McAuliffe said he'd give 1,000 percent of his abilities to the job and communication is one key.
"You have to be well-rounded, be able to communicate with everyone and have everyone on the same page by the time you leave the conversation," he said.
Cummins is a Taylor County sheriff's deputy while running for a different way to serve the public. "When this opportunity came up, I saw it as a continuation of my public service in a different direction," he said.
"The work of the JP, or the majority of it here in Abilene, revolves around civil litigation cases," Cummins said.
Cummins said his experience in the sheriff's office gives him the necessary experience.
