Still a Tie: The outcome of yesterday’s recount of the May 11thLiberty school board election that saw a tie vote between incumbent June Jackson and challenger Jeffrey Smart remains a tie. Election Day, the two logged 196 votes each. Liberty ISD trustees will meet tonight at 6 for their regularly scheduled board meeting. Both candidates in the tie agree a second election is the best option. At this point, Saturday June 15, is the recommended date for a second election. If trustees approve that, early voting would likely take place Monday through Friday June 3-7 and again on Monday and Tuesday, June 10-11.
