“Thank you,” Snyder said in an email statement on election night. “That is the best way I know to express my heartfelt gratitude and true honor at being re-elected to The Woodlands Township.

Totals from Harris County voters were still being counted at 10:40 p.m. when Montgomery County results were in. However, only a fraction of The Woodlands is located within Harris County, and the uncounted votes seemed unlikely to affect election outcomes on election night.
