Early voting begins Monday, and Texans will have the opportunity to vote on 10 constitutional amendments.
In addition to the constitutional amendments, Alvarado ISD is holding an $11 million bond election that will fund the expansion of the junior high school to allow the addition of sixth-graders to the campus.
The city of Grandview is holding a bond election and requests voters to approve a one-half percent tax rate increase to fund street repairs.
The city of Joshua is also holding a $3.9 million bond election for streets, sidewalks and drainage improvements. The tax rate will not be effected.
In Keene, seven people are running for three councilmember positions.
If you’re going to vote — and you should — nothing is easier than earlier voting. Shorter lines, less wait time and you can go to any of the open polling locations.
We encourage our readers to be informed voters. Don’t vote or someone just because you know them and you think they’re nice. Vote for the person you think will do the best job.
Voting is our right and our privilege as Americans. It is our duty to exercise that right and make informed decisions that influence the future of our communities.
