Military Votes Could Determine Kaufman County Court at Law No. 1 Race
Military votes due to be counted Monday, March 12, 2018, the legal deadline, could determine the Kaufman County Court at Law No. 1 Republican Primary race between current Judge Dennis Jones and challenger Tracy Booker Gray. As it stands now, Jones has a one-vote lead. Military votes must be post marked prior to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
March 15 is the last day for the County’s Early Voting Ballot Board to count ballots and for Kaufman County to canvas the vote. The State’s canvas-the-vote deadline is March 18, with results being certified that week. The Secretary of State’s Office may make the determination in this race, after the County completes their vote canvassing and turns in results to the State.
