Late Monday afternoon, the Ballot Board for the Lubbock County Elections Office met to go over provisional, mail-in and military ballots for the March 3rd Texas Primary Election.

Specifically, for the Lubbock County Commissioner Precinct 1 Republican Primary, a total of 17 votes were added to the totals previously compiled on Election Day, March 3. To avoid a runoff with Lee Ann Dumbauld, Terence Kovar would have to receive at least 50 percent of the provisional, mail-in and military ballots added to the Election Day totals.

When the dust settled, Terence Kovar remained at the 50.02 percent of votes received, with his total votes received rising from 6,342, on Election Day, to 6,351 (+9), on Monday.  Lee Ann Dumbauld's percentage also stayed the same at 42.93 percent, with her total votes received changing from 5,443 votes, on Election Day, to 5,451 (+8) on Monday. E. "Major" Garza remained in third place, with his total unchanged at 895 votes, and his percentage dropped from 7.06 percent to 7.05 percent.

Kovar now advances to the general election as the Republican running for Lubbock County Commissioner Precinct 1.
