A JP of the people, by the people, for the people

Judge Staudt is not an attorney. As Justice of the Peace, she is a judge for the people.


The Texas Constitution of 1876 established the Court of the Justice of the Peace. As Williamson County Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2, Judge Staudt is elected by voters in Precinct 2 to serve 4 year terms.



  • Must be a U.S. Citizen
  • Must be 18 or older first day of term
  • Must not have be determined mentally incompetent by a court
  • Must not be a felon
  • Must have been a resident for 12 months in Texas, 6 months in the precinct


Judge Edna Staudt is a lifelong, native Texan and a resident of Precinct 2 for over 28 years. She has sacrificially and selflessly invested in the lives of the citizens in our community, far above and beyond the responsibilities of the office of Justice of the Peace.


In short: She’s competent and she cares. Both in word and deed.
