After weeks of intersections being plastered with campaign signs and candidates campaigning around the county, Frisco residents voted on an alcohol proposition that could have turned Frisco wet, two city council positions, and a spot on the school board.

Approximately 10.8 percent of the voting age population of Frisco turned out to vote in the election. Per election rules for the Frisco City Council election, both city council elections will move forward to runoff elections that will be held on June 18, as neither winner achieved the 50 percent margin needed to clinch the spot.

Election results are as follows:

Frisco Alcohol Proposition

Against 7,974 (70.33%)
For 3,362 (29.67%)

Frisco City Council Place 2 (will advance to runoff)

Shona Huffman 4,831 (49.36%)
Terri Green 3,448 (34.46%)
Eric Hall 1,604 (16.17%)

Frisco City Council Place 4 (will advance to runoff)

Cindy Asche 3,360 (33.46%)
