Runoffs: Early voting in person is ongoing in some jurisdictions holding runoff elections on Saturday (or other dates) and has ended in others. Runoffs were required for some city, school district and other local district offices for which no candidate received a majority vote in the general election, including:

  • In Harris Co., just over 2,900 have cast ballots for the Houston ISD Trustee D7 race, and fewer than 200 have cast ballots in the Baytown council D3 race. Early voting in person has ended there.
  • In Travis Co., around 9K have cast ballots for the Austin council D10 runoff, where incumbent Sheri Gallo faces Alison Alter, and a pair of Austin Community College board runoffs. Early voting continues through Friday.
  • In Nueces Co., early voting has just begun to settle a heated runoff for the Robstown Utilities Board. The city has challenged the leading candidate’s eligibility over his lack of property ownership in the city. Early voting continues through next Friday for the December 20 runoff.
