The Laredo Buzz and Que Fregados have brought to our attention the number of votes reported to the public by the elections office earlier this week. The Buzz is alleging that two municipal court candidates lost votes when the final tally was presented.
This is a screen shot of the first set of numbers given out shortly after the polls closed Tuesday night:
And these are the numbers released by the LMT Wednesday afternoon:
Municipal Court Judge
Charles David Wise 1,811 6.54%
George Victor Garcia II 658 2.38%
Madeline Lopez Escoto 7,735 27.92%
Juan Caballero 7,489 27.03%
Rosie Cuellar Castillo 10,011 36.14%
Unfortunately I couldn't find a vote tally for this race being offered between these two reports. All the official numbers supposedly came in at around 6 a.m. Wednesday morning. Somebody is going to have to do a little more digging to see if Ms. Lopez-Escoto and Mr. Caballero did indeed receive more than 8,000 each as the Laredo Buzz states.
