The Township Election unofficial results, which do not include provisional votes, are expected to be posted Tuesday night, November 2, 2021, once the full unofficial results for all Township precincts have been posted by both the Montgomery County and Harris County election offices. The link to these consolidated results will also be posted in the election section of the website and a press release will be posted on the homepage.

Staff will be monitoring the County Election sites until 11 p.m. on Election Night in order to consolidate the unofficial results; however, in the event that all Township precinct returns are not available by 11 p.m., staff will post the consolidated unofficial results and the press release on the morning of Wednesday, November 3, 2021.
