Voter Turnout Trickle in Texas
In Lytle, Texas, in May, just 33 people voted for candidates for three openings on the School Board, including the only voter who cast a ballot in District 1. Christina Mercado was the 1-0 winner, but someone else voted for her. Mercado cannot vote for District 1 candidates because she doesn't live there, nor does the one candidate who opposed her. However, according to Texas law, Mercado can legally represent District 1 on the School Board.
