Smith County approves canvassed votes for Nov. 6 elections, including alcohol vote

Posted: Updated:

SMITH COUNTY (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Smith County commissioners approved the canvassed votes for the Nov. 6 election, including ballots cast in the local option alcohol contests.

The action is required by law to make an official count of all votes cast.
Election Administrator Karen Nelson reported 87,246 ballots were cast in the Nov. 6 election, which included races ranging from president to local races and propositions.

The votes were canvassed after a petition to contest the results in the alcohol elections awaits a hearing date in the 7th District Court. Two residents filed the election contest alleging county and city election officials failed to disqualify petition signatures according to state law and that the results should be thrown out.

Four alcohol propositions, two which legalized the sale of beer and wine in the city limits and inside JP Precinct 2, which includes unincorporated portions of the county west and south of Tyler, and the towns such as Flint and Bullard, were approved overwhelmingly by voters.
