Travis County canvasses election results
Travis County Commissioners made the results of the Nov. 4 elections official Tuesday. Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir, who oversees the Travis County Elections Office, read the results into the Commissioners Court record and reported that 41 percent of registered voters, about 270,000 people, cast ballots in Travis County. She also reminded the commissioners that with the Dec. 16 runoff for Austin City Council, the election is not over. She said the certified results would be delivered to the Texas Secretary of State’s office for official recording. A copy of the final report will be available on the elections website. Commissioners waived a precinct-by-precinct review of the votes and unanimously approved the election results.
