HARRIS COUNTY – Voters went to the polls in record numbers for both early voting, and election day votes. In the county over 1,610,000 votes were recorded, and in the nation over 140,000,000 votes were cast.
Unofficial results have been tabulated for all but the Presidential race, where at press time five states were still counting, and with Joe Biden leading, Donald Trump has filed lawsuits challenging the results.
In Harris County, Biden received 56% of the vote, or 911,913 while Trump received 43% or 699,771 votes. However, statewide in Texas Trump had the lead, as did most Republicans seeking office.
For Texas Senator, John Cornyn was reelected over Democratic challenger M.J. Hegar.
Incumbent U.S. Representatives Sheila Jackson Lee was returned with 73% of the votes, and Sylvia Garcia with 71%.
