Ballots were recounted today at both La Marque Independent School District and College of the Mainland to give final counts to two close races from the May 14 General Election.

La Marque ISD incumbent Dr. Bill Spillar and Davey Jones remaine tied in the race for District 7, each with 122 votes, follwing the recount. The recount was automatically called after the board canvassed the votes on Monday. The board will meet tonight to re-canvass the results and consider calling a special election to break the tie.  Agenda
