The runoff race for South Howard County District JP was won by Juanita Jackson, who narrowly outpolled Stacy Turner 51-47. The race was for the quorum court vacancy created by the death of Bobby Don Turner.

Another runoff was for the Mineral Springs School Board district seat encompassing parts of Howard and Hempstead counties. Incumbent Ricky Gamble outpolled Kay Thornton 62-26.
