Delayed election results cause concern for primary candidates, supporters

VICTORIA, Texas – An almost three hour delay in preliminary results for the Victoria County primary elections caused some concern from candidates and their supporters Tuesday night.

State House Representative District-30 Geanie Morrison was at Aero Crafters awaiting results from the local elections office and also checked in on the Secretary of State’s website for results.

““It was really difficult tonight for the election results to be so slow, especially here in Victoria for all the candidates and for everyone that was waiting to see what would happen and to wait for so long,” Morrison said. “But I know it’s a lot of work too and whatever we can do to help with making sure that, that happens a little bit more quickly would be wonderful.”

As of 11:30 p.m. Tuesday final results were still not reported by the local Victoria County elections office. Election administration officials say they aren’t sure when final results will be posted.

With the preliminary numbers, it looks like a runoff is likely for the Victoria County Sheriff, between Justin Marr and Dale Fowler, and Tax-Assessor Collector, between Ashley Hernandez and David Hagen, races.
