Vote

A sign marked the spot for election parking on a busy Saturday in downtown Commerce.

UPDATE at 10:55p.m. on 5/4/19 with final voting totals.

Incumbents won the day on Saturday in local elections in Commerce.

The position of Mayor and a place on the Commerce ISD Board of Trustees were contested in Saturday's election.

Mayor Wyman Williams and Trustee Gabe Wittkopf will retain their seats for the next few years, as they both won reelection with a decent margin. Both candidates saw their percentage of votes slip on election day as opposed to the early voting period, but it was not enough to unseat them.

205 ballots were cast during the early voting portion of Saturday's election, which was held from April 22 to 30. That figure was just 41 less than the total number of ballots cast all together in last year's municipal elections.

Close to 400 ballots were cast overall.
