Tarrant County ranked in the top 50 counties for early voter turnout in Texas during the Nov. 3 general election, surpassing 2016 turnout. No candidate for the GCISD Board of Trustees Place 5 seat received more than 50% of the vote, sending Canter and Snyder, the two candidates with the most votes, to the runoff election. Candidate Lori Crenshaw did not progress to the runoff.
