Cleburne officials urge residents to vote early in the city’s Nov. 2 special election at city hall to avoid possible confusion on election day.

Early voting runs through Oct. 29. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Oct. 28-29 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Cleburne City Hall is located at 10 N. Robinson St.

Up for a vote in the election is a proposed half cent increase in the city’s sales tax rate. If approved, those revenues will fund maintenance and repair of existing city streets. The funds cannot be used to build new city streets. City leaders estimate that sales tax revenues collected from residents and out-of-town visitors will bring more than $1 million a year in for street-repair projects.

Cleburne residents wishing to vote early in the Nov. 2 county and state elections, which are separate from the Cleburne city election, may vote at any one of the following locations.

zx Johnson County Courthouse, Room B6, 2 N. Main St., Cleburne.

zx Hill Junior College, 2112 Mayfield Blvd., Cleburne.

zx Burleson Sub-Courthouse Annex, Room 104, 247 Elks Drive, Burleson.

zx Johnson County Pioneers and Old Settlers Reunion Building, 111 Reunion Drive, Alvarado.

zx Commissioner Precinct 3 Maintenance Facility, 10420 E. FM 917, Alvarado.

zx Commissioner Precinct 4 Maintenance Facility, 4300 E. FM 4, Cleburne.

Early voting times and dates are the same as the Cleburne election.

Election day

Most Cleburne residents voting in the city election on Nov. 2 will vote at the same polling location as the county and state elections. Some residents will need to visit two locations if they wish to vote in both elections.

Voting locations in Cleburne where residents may vote in both elections include:

zx City District 1: First United Methodist Church, 1300 Westhill Drive

zx City District 2: St. Mark United Methodist Church, 1109 W. Henderson St.

zx City District 3: Cleburne Family Fellowship Church, 710 W. Kilpatrick Ave.

zx City District 4: Booker T. Washington Community & Recreation Center, 100 Mansfield Road.

Cleburne residents whose precinct sends them to a polling location other than those four locations will vote for the county and state elections at that location, but must visit one of the four city district locations to vote in the Cleburne city location. Those residents affected must visit the city district location listed on their voter registration card to vote in the city election.

City officials said the majority of residents will be able to vote in both elections at one location, but that a few residents will likely have to visit two locations.

City leaders said the cost of holding their own election, as opposed to joining the county, is substantially less.

Cleburne ISD, last May, contracted with Cleburne to hold joint city council and school board elections.

Cleburne also joined with the county last year to hold an option election calling for the sale of beer and wine. In that instance, state law required the county to hold the election for the city, officials said.
