Angelina County Elections

It was shortly before 4:30 this morning when final election results for Angelina County were reported.  Officials say machine programming errors and a bad printer slowed the vote counting down to a snail's pace.  At one point, election officials resorted to counting the paper ballots by hand and manually inputting the results.  The reported results as of 4:20 a.m. Wednesday in the locally contested races are:

County Tax Assessor-Collector

(D) David Minshew 4946

(D) Thelma "Midget" Sherman 6466
