Complete but unofficial results are in from yesterday’s Texas primary, and the contested races did their job of bringing voters to the polls.

Election officials say 27,968 ballots were cast in the Smith County Republican primary. On the Democratic side, 2,316 ballots were cast. Stats show the Republican total is more than the past three presidential elections combined.

More than 84 percent of Republican voters in Smith County supported the school choice referendum.

A total of 85 percent of Smith County Democrats supported Proposition 1, which would have the state granting in-state tuition at state-supported colleges and universities to any Texas high school graduate who has lived in the state for at least three years and continuously for the past year.

A total of 93 percent of Democratic voters supported Proposition 2, which would call on the Texas Legislature to “fund colleges and universities such that tuition and fees can be affordable to all Texans.”

The necessary runoffs will happen July 31, and the general election is November 6.
