That is the link to use - there is only one for election results, click submit if you want state results, not county result.

That is what happened to our county judge candidate who died. It was AFTER the ballots were printed, so the name could not be removed.

Our County Judge died recently. He is still on the ballot. I wonder if anyone will vote for him.

Early results are already tabulated so the early vote should go up on that SOS link soon.

It's less than 1% of the precincts reporting. Take a few deep breaths.

Nobody in the donkey line.

Here in the TX Hill Country where most local races are between Republicans, the Donkeys I know were voting it the Republican Primary. I am sure they voted for the least electable Republicans in the State races.

Polls are still open in El Paso (so what) and will stay open in Travis Cty for an extra 2 hours.


(Travis Co) Ballots cast after 7 p.m., but before the polls close, will be provisional, in accordance with Texas election laws. The votes will be included in the final tally, but results from the provisional ballots will not be included in Tuesday’s unofficial voting totals.

The communications director for the Travis County Republican Party, Andy Hogue, released this statement:

“Later hours may increase turnout among last-minute voters — it might prove convenient for those with lengthy evening commutes. But this is causing some headaches for our Precinct Chairmen and Election Judges who have to arrange for later hours at the community centers, businesses, and church buildings they’re meeting at.There are three of us at TCRP headquarters answering questions from our election workers and precinct chairs. Our phone has been ringing off the hook all day.
We’re keeping track of changing Precinct Convention locations at http://www.tcrp.org.”;

The Travis County Democrats are also reacting. Executive Director JD Gins released this statement to KXAN News:
“We have been monitoring the developments and now with the ruling the polls will stay open until 9pm and the clear weather, the TCDP believes almost everyone should have a chance to vote. With the 4 hour delay, the Democratic Party felt strongly there should at least be a two hour extension, which Judge Livingston granted. Since the polls have opened turnout has been strong, and if it keeps up at this pace we will have higher than average turnout between Early Voting and Election Day. The Democratic Party is happy the extension of voting hours and hopes everyone will get out and vote if they have not done so already, and reminds voters they can vote at any election polling location that is convenient for them.”

I am sure they [Democrats] voted for the least electable Republicans in the State races.

Which won't help them a whit -- as there isn't a single Democrat which is electable in any state-wide race.

Our Republican county judge candidate who died, almost beat the Democrat candidate in that election.

The friends of your deceased county judge will vote for him out of friendship for him.

Dewhurst is looking poorly - about 44,000 out of 166,000. Dan Patrick has nearly twice that. 1.22% counted so far.

Both Stockman and Stovall trending up. Remember, early votes get counted first. RAT crossovers were more likely to cross-over early.

95% for drug testing welfare recipients, and 99% that elected officials and staff have to live with the same laws we plebes do.

I'm loving that.

I saw Cornball with 64 percent in early returns; I had initially predicted 65 percent for him. People in TX can’t get enough Cornball, but no one knows why.

It’s likely that these propositions will get zero news coverage; people voting for the propositions are voting for candidates at odds with those views in many cases.

It is ever thus. On policies, the electorate is much more conservative than it is on personalities but they seem never to reconcile the one to the other.
