Two Ellis County races came down to just a handful of votes Tuesday in the Nov. 6 General Election, while the rest all ended rather favorably for the Republicans.

In total, over 55.8 percent (60,758) of the 108,826 of registered voters in Ellis County cast a ballot in the midterm elections — down just slightly from the 64,355 of ballots (62.9 percent of 102,217) turned in during the 2016 General Election.

The win of the evening came in the race for precinct-three constable, where Democratic candidate Curtis Polk Jr. defeated incumbent Michael McCorkle (Rep) by 138 votes.

Polk received 1,993 votes (51.8 percent) to the 1,855 of McCorkle (48.2 percent).

The second close race came down to a mere 37 votes, with incumbent Dan D. Cox (Rep) defeating Sharon Levingston (Dem) 1,941-1,904 to remain in his role as Ellis County justice of the peace for precinct three.

The highly-contested race for Ellis County judge that unfolded during the primary election ended with Republican Todd Little (70.3 percent) running away from Democratic candidate J.R. Phillips (29.7 percent).

"God bless you, God bless Ellis County, and God bless Texas," said Little, who received 41,558 votes to the 17,551 of Phillips, during a watch party hosted by the Ellis County Republican Party on Tuesday.

Jackie Miller Jr. (Rep), who won his race for Ellis County justice of the peace for precinct two rather handily over Hector Tamayo (Dem) 11,564-3,209, added the election was "one of the most important in our lifetime, our children’s lifetime and maybe our grandchildren's lifetime. It’s an honor to serve as your justice of the peace precinct two for four more years, and I hope to do it again.”
