All five of Houston's at-large races will head to a runoff election Dec. 14. Results below include reporting from Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties.

Update: 2 a.m. Nov. 6

As of 2 a.m. election night, only 176 of Harris County’s 757 voting centers reported election results.

A statement from Harris County Clerk Diane Trautman on Nov. 1 warned of slow returns but declined to give a definitive timeline. A recent change in reporting procedure requirements from Texas Secretary of State was anticipated to cause delays, Trautman said.
