As we do most years, we have obtained the voter file and compiled the voting histories of candidates for Lewisville City Council and Mayor, as well as for the Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees.
A history of voting in local elections shows that a candidate has been engaged enough to follow through with that they are able to do as a regular citizen.
You can view our compiled history in one handy PDF file here.

Note that for comparison’s sake, we threw in voting history of sitting members who are not up for re-election this year. Most candidates had a fair history of voting in local elections (marked with pink background). Penny Mallet voted in only one out of the seven local elections listed. Mary Smith voted in four locals, while Winston Edmondson voted in five. Ronni Cade voted in six. Neil Ferguson and Rudy Durham each voted in seven.

Sandra Weinstein had only one local election under her belt, but has only been in the district for about three years. Likewise, David Hernandez had only voted in the March primary, since he just turned 18 and would not have been able to vote in prior years.
Deniese Riemenschneider voted in three local elections, and Allison Lassahn has voted in five. Kronda Thimesch has voted in six.
Data may not be complete for elections prior to 2005, or if a voter’s registration was effective after the date of a listed election. Voters can and do move into and out of the county and/or districts. For this reason, the charts include the number of years living in the district, as each candidate has indicated on their ballot application. The effective registration date is also listed for each candidate. All data is provided by the Denton County Elections office, and compiled by The Lewisville Texan Journal. Check our work…
Note – 4/23: This story was corrected from an earlier version. The charts were correct, but we incorrectly listed the number of votes for Allison Lassahn, which has been corrected above.
