House District 118

Republican John Lujan narrowly defeated Democrat Frank Ramirez in a special runoff Tuesday for Texas House District 118.

The runoff race, set by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, coincided with the state constitutional amendments and local bond elections.

Residents in the district — which includes south and east Bexar County — had to vote twice in order to cast a ballot in the runoff and the general election. That’s because Abbott did not announce the runoff date until the Monday before early voting, and it was too late to be included on the same ballot.

Bexar County Emergency Services District No. 9 

Voters in China Grove appeared to approve the creation of Emergency Services District No. 9 to offer fire and EMS protection for the area. Election results as of 9:45 p.m. showed the approval with a 70% lead.

The emergency services district can impose a property tax of no more than 10 cents per $100 valuation to support their operations.

The chief of the China Grove Volunteer Fire Department Mike Winfield said he was proud of the professional level of fire and EMS protection provided by his 16 volunteers, but he listed a number of benefits under the formation of an ESD.

"Probably the biggest thing is going to be paid staff here. We'll be looking to put on paid firefighters. You know, safer, more effective, more efficient equipment and apparatus, and training and all these things will be a huge benefit to our response area," Winfield said.


Southside Independent School District: Proposition A

Southside ISD asked voters for $52 million for campus renovations and new school buses. The proposition was rejected by voters.


East Central Independent School District: Proposition A

East Central ISD asked voters to approve a $172 million bond to pay for the construction of three new schools, plus a career center, a warehouse and new police headquarters. The proposition was rejected by voters.


Judson Independent School District: Propositions A, B and C

Judson ISD asked voters to approve three separate propositions worth a combined $302 million in bonds.

Prop A would have paid for school facilities, but it was voted down.


Prop B would have paid for athletic and extracurricular facilities, but it was voted down.


Prop C would have paid for technology needs, but it was voted down.


Alamo Heights Independent School District: Proposition A

Alamo Heights ISD voters approved a slight increase in the district’s tax rate for operating schools. The measure will boost the district’s local revenue without increasing the overall tax rate thanks to a decrease in the tax rate that pays back bonds.


Comal Independent School District: Propositions: A, B, C, D and E

Preliminary election results for one of the fastest growing school districts in the San Antonio area show voters were willing to fund SOME of the district’s proposals, but not all of them.

Voters in Comal, Bexar and Guadalupe counties narrowly approved a two cent increase in Comal ISD’s tax rate. They also passed a $411 million bond for new schools and buses, and a $34 million bond for technology.

But they struck down bond proposals for recreational facilities and stadiums.

Comal ISD is located in multiple counties. Live election results from Bexar County are not displayed because they are partial results that do not accurately reflect the overall outcome of the district's elections.


Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District: School Board

Preliminary election results for three open seats on the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD school board show voters chose experience — with one exception. Voters in Bexar and Guadalupe Counties re-elected Place 4 trustee Edward Finley and chose retired teacher Belinda Evans to represent Place 7.

But former board president Gary Inmon has lost his seat on the board to Amy Thomas. Inmon's law license was suspended in 2017, and he pleaded guilty to felony charges in 2019 for mishandling a woman’s estate.

Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD is located in multiple counties. Live election results from Bexar County are not displayed because they are partial results that do not accurately reflect the overall outcome of the district's elections.
