Unofficial early voting results from Fort Bend and Harris counties show Monica Riley has received the highest percentage of early voting votes in the race for Missouri City City Council District A. As of 7:42 p.m. both Fort Bend and Harris counties are reporting some early voting results, but no voting centers from either county have reported any election day results.

The runoff was held because no candidate received more than 50% of the vote during the Nov. 2 election, according to the Missouri City city secretary's office. In statements to Community Impact Newspaper after the Nov. 2 election race, both Riley and Pearson, candidates for the District A seat on Missouri City City Council, said they were excited to advance to the runoff election. “As a first-time candidate running for City Council, I feel like I did fantastic,” Riley said. “To get enough votes to go into a runoff is another great opportunity to reach out to voters and the residents so more people can get the chance to meet me and learn a little more about the value that I bring to the city.” All results are unofficial until canvassed.
