Every May 15 by proclamation of the President is Peace Officers Memorial Day
Peace Officers Memorial Day is a part of Police Week, paying tribute to local, State and Federal law enforcement officers. Flags are flown at half-staff in memory of those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Services honoring the fallen will be conducted across the country, including Washington, D.C.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. features the names of more than 19,000 law enforcement officers which have been killed in the line of duty.
At 7 p.m. on Election Day, the Elections Department will release the results of early voting and they will be posted on the Bexar County Elections Website. When the polls are closed on Election Day, the poll site results are printed on a tape and posted at the individual Election Day poll site.
You may view the results there.
After the election judge completes all poll site closing tasks, then that tape is taken to a regional sending site and the poll site results are transmitted to the tabulation center.
Results are released from the tabulation center throughout the election night and are updated periodically on the website as the election results are reported.
Results will be compiled and used by the City this summer when evaluating our contract with Republic Services.
