UPDATE: San Augustine County Judge race proves every vote counts

SAN AUGUSTINE, TX (KTRE)- A week after the Texas primary elections, and we're still learning why every vote matters for candidates.

In San Augustine County, Samye Johnson apparently unseated incumbent county judge Randy Williams, by just one vote.

Last Tuesday, election officials decided to review the provisional ballots before officially declaring a winner.

Since then, each candidate has received two additional votes-- the same margin.

A re-count was held Saturday, to settle the election.

The final count is in and Samye Johnson is the official winner with 1203 votes and Randy Williams with 1197 votes.
