County election officials completed counting any overseas and provisional ballots by today (Wednesday) and uploaded their updated numbers to the Secretary of State. County parties canvass the primary vote tomorrow (Thursday). At that point, the vote totals become official, and candidates may ask for recounts or file suits challenging the election results.
HD47: One vote still separates the second- and third-place finishers in the Republican primary, but the candidates have switched positions. Justin Berry now leads former Austin council member Don Zimmerman by 1 vote. Berry received six of the 10 overseas and provisional ballots counted in the race. Once the results are canvassed tomorrow (Thursday), Zimmerman will have the opportunity to request a recount. Jennifer Fleck will face either Berry or Zimmerman in the runoff.
CD31: Dan Janjigian, who finished 6th in the six-way Democratic primary (4%), endorsed Donna Imam in the Democratic runoff over Christine Mann.
