My Grandfather Won This Election in 1912

Election Results found in the Bryan Family Bible

My grandfather, Redic E. Bryan, ran for and won the position of Tax Assessor of Baylor County, Texas in 1912. The above election results were found in the Bryan Family Bible. The date for this election is August 12, 1912. However, the actual election results were reported in the November 15, 1912 issue of the Baylor County Banner. Was the above clipping a report of a primary? 

This card was found in the Bryan Family Bible
This was Redic Bryan's second term as Tax Assessor as he also ran and won the office of Tax Assessor in 1910. 
He believed in rotation of office and did not run after his second term.  Click on this link to see the biography published in the Banner during the 1910 election.
