Texas school board candidate wins election 1-0

LYTLE — The suspense had lifted Wednesday before Christina Mercado claimed an unequivocal victory in a Lytle Independent School District board race that had made headlines for its voter turnout of just one.

Patty Cortez, the other contender, who came out on the short end of the 1-0 vote, didn't show up for the meeting of the Early Voting Ballot Board, which rejected a sealed provisional ballot that might have tied the contest.

"I don't see the point in being there," said Cortez, who had a prior obligation, noting that word had circulated that the ballot would be disallowed because it was cast by someone who lived outside the single-member district whose board seat was at stake.

In a related development, the identity of "The Voter," as people here call the person who cast the lone legitimate ballot, will remain confidential, for now.
