KSAT journalists worked around the clock to give you the latest and best coverage for the May 1 election.

KSAT anchor Steve Spriester hosted election results livestream as polls closed and results began to trickle in at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The livestream featured KSAT anchors, reporters in the field, guests from all walks of life — including some candidates on the ballot — and up-to-the-minute results and analysis.

Ultimately, election night resulted in an easy victory for Mayor Ron Nirenberg, five runoffs for city council seats, the approval of Proposition A and a close race for Proposition B, which failed to pass.
