10:58 BOS/9:58 HOU
Final RESULTS!
A–Stardig 51%/Brown 49%
D–Boykins 70%/Provost 30%
I–Gallegos 53%/Garces 47%
AL2–Robinson 51%/Burks 49%
AL3–Kubosh 53%/Morales 47%

HCC3–Tamez 53%/Garcia 47%
HCC5–Glaser 60%/Kunetka–40%

10:48 BOS/9:48 HOU
We can now project that Brenda Stardig will win in District A. Only At-large 2 still undecided, and David Robinson looks to be the hand-down favorite to win at this point.

10:24 BOS/9:24 HOU
We can now project that Zeph Capo will win in HCC1 and Adriana Tamez will win in HCC3. District A and AL2 only other races left to be called, and Stardig and Robinson both look to be very likely winners.

10:20 BOS/9:20 HOU
A–Stardig 51%/Brown 49%
D–Boykins 70%/Provost 30%
I–Gallegos 52%/Garces 48%
AL2–Robinson 51%/Burks 49%
AL3–Kubosh 53%/Morales 47%
HCC1–Capo 53%/Navarro-Flores 47%
HCC3–Tamez 52%/Garcia 48%
HCC5–Glaser 59%/Kunetka–41%

10:14 BOS/9:14 HOU
Texpatriate can now project that Robert Gallegos will win in District I, upsetting the “dynasty” that has held power there for 12 years. We have previously projects Boykins in D, Kubosh in AL3 and Glaser in HCC5 as successful. A, AL2, HCC1 and HCC3 all still too close to call!

8:25 BOS/7:25 HOU
Texpatriate has called District D for Boykins and HCC5 for Glaser. Texas Leftist has also called At-large 3 for Kubosh. We will probably make calls in District A, At-large #3 and HCC1 once the first election day results roll in.

8:04 BOS/7:04 HOU
Early voting numbers are in!!!!
A–Stardig 53%/Brown 53%
D–Boykins 70%/Provost 30%
I–Gallegos 50.5%/Garces 49.5%
AL2–Burks 50.5%/Robinson 49.5%
AL3–Kubosh 53%/Morales 47%
HCC1–YNF 55%/Capo 45%
HCC3–Garcia 50.3%/Tamez 49.6%
HCC5–Glaser 59%/Kunetka 41%

8:00 BOS/7:00 HOU
The polls have closed! Waiting for early voting numbers to come in now.

7:05 BOS/ 6:05 HOU
T-minus 55 minutes until the close of the polls. Turnout has been remarkably light thus far today, with estimates of voting rates currently between 3 and 4% of the vote. There will be 8 contests up for election today, including 2 at-large City Council races, 3 district City Council races and 3 HCC races.

Specifically, City Councilmember Andrew Burks will face David Robinson in his bid for a second term in At-large #2. Similarly, City Councilmember Helena Brown will face former City Councilmember Brenda Stardig two years after the former defeated the latter for re-election. Michael Kubosh and Roy Morales will challenge one another in At-large #3, as will Dwight Boykins & Georgia Provost in District D and Graciana Garces & Robert Gallegos in District I.

In HCC races, which Texpatriate did not report throughout the campaign but we will note the results thereof, longtime incumbent Yolanda Navarro-Flores will face Zeph Cado in tonight’s runoff. Adriana Tamez will likewise seek to unseat incumbent Herlinda Garcia. Finally, Robert Glaser and Phil Kunetka will face one another in the third HCC race.

These races have big implications for policy, but we will have plenty of time to deal with that tomorrow.
