The race for District 3 State Representative saw voters in the six-county district shift their support from incumbent Democrat Mark Homer to Republican Erwin Cain of Hopkins County.
Special elections were also decided along with the general election ballot for voters in the city of Como, Cumby Independent School District and the Sulphur Bluff school district.
More than twice as many Republicans voted the straight party ticket than Democrats in Tuesday’s general election.
Voters picked Brian Dorner, Bill Wilder and John Vance as Sulphur Bluff ISD trustees in Tuesday voting while Cumby ISD voters turned down two bond proposals. Races for two commissioner slots were also decided in the city of Como, with Donald Meeks claining victory in the race for street commissioner and Brandon Gunn winning the run for water commissioner
