Liberty County Election Day returns

It is a tight race between incumbent Leon Wilson and challenger Craig McNair for Pct. 4 commissioner. With all boxes reporting in the Dayton area, Wilson is ahead of McNair by three votes. However, provisional ballots could change the election results. The Liberty County Elections Administration office will meet on Wednesday, March 2, at 10 a.m. to count the 16 provisional ballots.

With the central counting judge, the early ballot board judge and the elections administrator having giving a precursory look at those provisional ballots, only two provisional ballots are expected to count, so the provisional ballots are not likely to change the razor-thin difference between the candidates.

The following are the absentee and early voting numbers and all boxes reporting except for Liberty County. Some state races will be omitted until later tonight in order to provide the local election returns more quickly.

The votes are listed by absentee/early voting/election day/total votes for Liberty County. These tallies for state and national races do not include other counties or voting jurisdictions. The winners in the Republican and Democratic primaries may still face an election on Nov. 7 if their race is opposed by the other party.

11 COMMENTS

  1. Pam Smith should have won. Makes you think its rigged. She was the top candidate and I am very disappointed. I hope that’s not the last we see of Ms. Pam.

    • I’m curious how Mrs. Smith was the top candidate.. No one really knew her from the area… Sounds like someone is the entitlement generation and everyone deserves a trophy mentality..

      • And what are you? From the old, tired hag generation? I simply said the wrong person won. Everyone knows Belt is an idiot. Get over it.

      • Why do you think she was the top candidate..she was the first on the Ballot ..not top candidate

  2. TX Republican

    Looks like you are the idiot… The voters have spoke and that was their pick.. Seem a little butt hurt time… little cry baby that didn’t get his way… clearly by the name we all know who you are and your actions speak volumes and the way you conduct yourself clearly is childish.. suck it up butter cup the voters spoke…

  3. I heard Pam Smith say if she’d have known Mr. Belt was running she wouldn’t have signed up…well when you found out you should’ve backed out.

  4. I hope Craig McNair wins! Leon Wilson is a nasty horrible man who’s pissed off many folks as the results show. Leon Wilson is an embarrassment to local government and needs to be fired. Leon is a creep who only represents himself and cares nothing about his constitutes. Go Craig!

  5. They were both running as Republicans. You do not run down another Republican just because
    you lost this Republican Election. If you are a True Republican then get behind and support the winner.

    • Did I say I was a republican? I only voted in the republican primary to vote for Craig McNair. I don’t give a hoot what party Leon claims to be, he’s a horrible person. I have first hand experience with him. He has no business in government. Peace.
