On my ballot, I see Angela Graves-Harrington listed as being in the 246th district, and Charles Collins as being in the same district. On your website endorsement it shows Charles Collins as being in the 248th district.
Thank you for catching that!! It is a mistake, which has now been corrected.
I just voted and noticed that your listing for 188th Civil District Court is for Scott Dollinger, but ballot says the 189th Judicial District.
