Texas Election Contest: Gilberto Perez v. Oziel Treviño 2016-06 Hidalgo municipal runoff Election contest Absentee/Mail Illegal assistance 6 A judge ordered a new election to be held for Hidalgo City Council Place 5 after candidate Gilberto Perez successfully contested the results, proving that campaign workers aligned with his opponent, incumbent councilman Oziel Treviño, gave voters illegal assistance with mail-in ballots in the June 2016 runoff election and that non-residents and ineligible people cast ballots in the Place 5 race. Perez lost the seat to Trevino by just six votes in the runoff election. Most witnesses testified that they received voting assistance when they did not actually require assistance and that campaign workers insisted they vote for the slate sponsored by city councilman Rudy Franz.
