Early voting results for southern Denton County races

The Denton County Elections Office released early voting numbers Saturday evening.

Thousands of southern Denton County residents voted early in the General Election to decide a variety of local races, including a five-candidate race for mayor of Flower Mound, a home-rule decision in Northlake and a $746 million bond in Northwest ISD.

The Flower Mound mayoral race looks to be headed for a runoff between Derek France and Itamar Gelbman. If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, a runoff is triggered between the top two vote-getters. After early voting, France has 40.61% of the vote and Gelbman has 26.83%.

In Highland Village, voters overwhelmingly supported the incumbents seeking reelection to City Council. Mike Lombardo, Tom Heslep and Dan Jaworski will each serve another two-year term.

Northlake will overwhelmingly approve its new Home Rule Charter. After early voting, 86.39% of voters voted for the proposition.

In Lewisville ISD, Buddy Bonner and Allison Lassahn are leading in early voting totals, but Lassahn’s lead is a tight one over Sheila Taylor.

This story will be updated later Saturday night as more Election Day results are released. The following results are unofficial early voting results provided by the Denton County Elections Office:
