Complete but unofficial voting totals show Jason Ellis has defeated Mike Patterson in the GOP Primary runoff for County Court at Law Judge, 6,337 votes or 62.4 percent, to 3,821 votes or 37.6 percent with all precincts reporting.

Ellis will replace retiring Judge Thomas Dunn in January because there is no Democrat running for the position in the November general election.
