Unofficial results: Montgomery beats Bone, wins place on Round Rock City Council

ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) – Hilda Montgomery leads Hollis Bone in a special election held Saturday to fill a Round Rock City Council seat, according to unofficial final election results released Saturday evening by Williamson County elections officials.

The unofficial tally showed Montgomery with 1,868 votes, or 55.81 percent, to Bone’s 1,402 votes, or 41.89 percent.

This election was to fill the seat formerly held by Kris Whitfield, who resigned in October. She had served since May 2007 but recently moved to Wyoming.

Round Rock’s city charter requires an empty seat on the council to be filled within 120 days of any resignation, hence Saturday’s special election.

Officials said 3,352 ballots were cast, placing voter turnout at 5.51 percent of the nearly 61,000 registered voters eligible to participate in the election.

A third candidate, John Montgomery, barely registered in the tally with 77 votes, or 2.3 percent of the total cast.

Unofficial final election results for a Dec. 16, 2017, special election for Round Rock City Council posted by Williamson County elections officials.
