Do we have breakouts by county by chance?

Keisha Rogers is a LaRouche Democrat. Should she be listed here.

Chairman Lewis and other Democrats have done a terrific job of filling out the winning ticket for Harris County in 2014 AND keeping the public informed as to filings in a most timely manner. And now we are off to the races to return government to the people of Harris County….ALL of the people. Thanks Mr. Chairman!

btw – My understanding is that this posting is the final officially filed ballot as certified and sent to the Secretary of State in ballot order.

It says contested next to Department of Education, Position 7 At-Large but only shows one candidate. I thought Traci Jensen was running for that position also.

Thanks for posting however, my name is mispelled though. It should read Barbara J. Stalder not “Stadler”. thanks for correcting.

Thank you Willie Belle

I was hoping Leticia Abalza would run against Carol Alvarado. Over the last year I have learned a lot about carol. I will not ever support her or James again.
