Voters Pick Snider, Allen in Clerk Races

Voters chose their next clerks in two open races on Tuesday night.

In Potter County, Carley Snider, a court administrator for the 181st Judicial District Court, earned the Republican nomination for District Clerk on Tuesday night. Snider won 3,795 votes, or 55 percent. Her only opponent, Potter County criminal department supervisor Crystal Flores, won 3,149 votes, or 45 percent.

Meanwhile, in Randall County, Republican voters chose Susan Allen in the three-way contest for County Clerk. Allen, a retired bookkeeper, won 7,344 votes or about 51 percent in the contest. Marie McNutt, a county clerk's office employee, won 3,779 votes, or 26 percent. Jami Love, an assistant auditor, rounded out the field with 3,409 votes, or about 23 percent.

Both Snider and Allen will not face Democrats in November and will likely win election unopposed. Snider and Allen will succeed Caroline Woodburn and Renee Calhoun, respectively.
