Early voting continues for the June 14 special election for CD34 open (Lean R) through Friday. As of yesterday (Sunday), not quite 7K people have voted early in person (77%) or by mail (23%), which is roughly 1.7% of registered voters.
Recounts: Runoff candidates can request a recount until Wednesday at 5 p.m. local time.
CD15 open (Toss Up): Ruben Ramirez (D) requested a recount of his 30-vote runoff loss to Michelle Vallejo (D). “We owe it to the district and the voters of TX-15 to ensure that every vote is counted accurately,” he said in a statement. Vallejo said her “mind has been focused on the general” election since she declared victory last week.
CD28 (Lean D): Jessica Cisneros (D) requested a recount of her 281-vote runoff loss to U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo). “With just under 0.6% of the vote symbolizing such stark differences for the future in South Texas, I owe it to our community to see this through to the end,” Cisneros said in a statement. Cuellar said every count had been counted. “I welcome this process as it will only further verify our victory,” he said.
