Travis Mitchell appears to have won the runoff election in the race for mayor of Kyle.

The unofficial final count from Hays County shows Mitchell defeated challenger Linda Tenorio at 1,257 votes to 1,012.


The Dec. 8 election was not as close as the Nov. 3 election, during which neither Mitchell nor Tenorio managed to get more than 50% of the vote. That resulted in the Dec. 8 runoff race.

Tenorio barely edged Mitchell once all Nov. 3 votes were counted, with 5,831 votes to 5,795.

Results are updated as of Dec. 9 at 7:10 a.m. and are unofficial until they are canvassed and certified by the county clerk.
