A recount is being considered by a number of citizens in Wilson County. According to Sections 212.024, 212.028, and 212.112 of Texas Law, a recount must be conducted if the following conditions are met:

• ‘the difference in the number of votes received for the measure and against the measure is less than 10 percent of the total number of votes received on the measure as shown by the election returns’ [in this election the difference was 11 votes or 0.4%, well under the threshold]
• ‘any 25 or more persons, acting jointly, who were eligible to vote in the election petition the County for a recount’
• The petition must be received by the County by 5 p.m. of the fifth day after Election Day [this is a Sunday so the petition must be submitted before COB on Friday Nov 8th]

The deposit for the recount is as follows:
• $60 for each precinct in which regular paper ballots were used and $100 for each precinct in which an electronic voting system was used
• This recount will require $160 for each of the 16 precincts the County had open on Election Day for a total of $2,560 payable in a cashier's check or money order.

We estimate that this recount should take no more than 3 or 4 County employees for a period of five or six hours to accomplish. At time and a half this is probably $600 or less. In theory, the remaining $1,900 should be reimbursable to the group organizing the recount. This reimbursement would then be given back to the donors.

Anyone who is interested in signing the petition and/or signing the petition and making a donation for the deposit please call 830-391-6872.
