Locally-focused elections took place on Tuesday, Nov. 2 with polls opening at 7 a.m. and closing at 7 p.m. in the Brazos Valley. 

Final results for the 2021 municipal elections in Brazos County came in late Tuesday evening after polls officially closed at 7 p.m.
According to the College Station city blog, results are not yet official, but all early voting ballots have been counted in addition to received absentee ballots as well as the tally from all 24 polling places. As an odd-year election, turnout was expected to be lower than that of the previous presidential election. As of Nov. 3, Brazos County saw a turnout of 10,474 out of 129,201 registered voters, only 8.11 percent.
“A total of 67 absentee and military ballots are outstanding,” the city blog reads. “Absentee ballots will be counted if postmarked by [Tuesday] and received Wednesday. Military ballots will be counted through Nov. 8.”
City Council Place 4 incumbent Elizabeth Cunha, 56.3%, was re-elected for another term over candidate William Wright, 43.8%.
“I think it’s real validation from the community on the work I’ve done this past year, and that’s incredibly gratifying,” Cunha told The Eagle. “I think we need to build back some of our good morale with one another, and I look forward to being a part of that as well. I think we have a really good city council, and I look forward to being a part of the discussions as we guide the city forward meaningfully through the growth that we are experiencing.”
City Council Place 6 candidates David Levine, 38.2%, and incumbent Dennis Maloney, 45.5%, will advance to a runoff election, as neither candidate received the 50 percent plus one majority required on Election Day. The College Station city blog said the council will consider adopting an ordinance calling for a runoff election to occur on Tuesday, Dec. 14. Levine and Maloney will advance ahead of third candidate Marie-Anne Mousseau, 16.3%. In the meantime, Maloney will continue to serve in the post, according to the city blog.
“I think that we’re going to make this biggest runoff happen,” Levine told The Eagle. “My opponent has been through some off-year runoffs that he has won, and I’m not worried about it. I think we have a really strong platform, and I think the number of people that showed up told me that. To be within 400-ish votes of the incumbent that has so many years of tenure is super exciting to me.”
Propositions A and B of the College Station city charter amendments on the ballot were passed, according to the College Station city blog. These propositions were for prohibiting council members from having financial interest in city contracts and transactions and requiring council members to disclose contributions of more than $500. Proposition C, which called to move city elections in November of odd-numbered years, failed to pass, having received 3,747 votes, 63.9%, against.
College Station election results canvassing will occur during the city council’s Nov. 11 meeting.
According to The Eagle, College Station Independent School District, or CSISD, School Board Place 1 candidate Darin Paine, 62.72%, was elected over Amy Alge, 37.28%, and CSISD School Board Place 2 was won by candidate Blaine Decker, 42.24%, followed by candidates Kim Ege, 35.67%, and Mengmeng Gu, 22.09%.
Three of four of the CSISD Bond propositions passed including propositions A, B and C, which include a bond for phase 1 of a career and technical education facility as well as the purchase of land, buses and vehicles, an increase in instructional technology, and renovations to the district’s natatorium. CSISD Bond Proposition D failed to pass, 52.81%, which included a bond for an update to the A&M Consolidated High School football stadium, including fieldhouse and press box renovations and upgrades to the sound system.
