On March 2014 I shared with you my analysis on the County Judge race in my blog post titled “County Judge Election Analysis.” In that post I shared with you that the cost per vote in 2006 was $7.37 per vote. This is for all of the votes cast in that county election. In 2010, the cost per vote dropped to $2.09. In my post “County Judge Election 2014 by the Numbers” I shared with you Eddie Holguin spent $2 per vote, while Veronica Escobar spent $5 per vote. Aliana Apodaca, on the other hand, spent $14 per vote in 2014 County Election. In Saturday’s city elections, the average cost per vote was $14.24.
I thought you might like to see a comparison of how much each vote cost each individual candidate. Rather than bore you with more words I believe most of you are enjoying the infographics I have been using instead of wordy posts.
Therefore here is an infographic detailing how much each candidate spent for each vote they received. As you can tell is went from a low of 49 cents to high of $36.60 per vote.
As many of you have commented on social media there was an interesting outcome in the Josh Dagda/Cortney Niland race that I believe has sealed the door shot for Niland’s quest for the mayor’s office. I’ll have some commentary on that this afternoon.
