The Harris County Clerk’s office has posted the results for the 11 City Council races that went to runoffs on Saturday.

In the District H race, just 12 votes separate the two candidates, with incumbent Karla Cisneros narrowly leading challenger Isabel Longoria. “It has been a long election but we're excited to see the still-to-come official results for last night's runoff election once all community members' votes have been counted, including military and provisional ballots. Until then, the race remains too close to call,” Longoria said in a statement. “I will wait for every vote to be counted before making any decisions about a recount or other process.”

All 16 City Council seats were on the ballot this year, with over 100 candidates in the running. Four of them were decided on Nov. 5: District E (Incumbent Dave Martin); District G (Incumbent Greg Travis); District I (Incumbent Robert Gallegos); and District K (Incumbent Martha Castex-Tatum).

The other 12 races went to runoff elections, as no candidate received over 50% of the vote. While 11 of the runoffs were held on Saturday, December 14, the District B runoff has been delayed due to an ongoing legal challenge.
