Tony Diaz Needs Every Vote Counted

In my election thoughts from yesterday, I failed to mention a very important race in Aldine ISD, where my friend, Tony Diaz, was challenging an incumbent for a seat. Diaz’s campaign put forth a valiant Election Day effort, earning almost 60% of the vote after a slower show in mail ballots and early voting. The five vote margin shows that every vote really does matter; unfortunately, it was Diaz who was short.

I’m not sure about a recount process at this time, but I do know every vote must be counted before the official canvass. That said, there are provisional ballots which were cast in the race that can only be counted if the voter heads over to the County to prove their eligibility to vote by way of a Voter ID by Monday. As Diaz reminded voters:

Provisional Votes MUST be Counted. Every Vote Counts.

If you voted a provisional Ballot on Nov 3 in the Aldine School Board race. You have time to make your vote count.

Monday Nov 9, 2015 at 5:00 pm is the deadline to make you Provisional Vote count.
