Election Day is November 7th and on that day the voting polls may get congested, but by participating in early voting you can avoid the crowds. Luckily, early voting is taking place now through November 3rd.
As of the end of yesterday, out of 16650 registered voters there were only 42 of people who have voted in person and 191 who have submitted their ballots by mail. The ballot for this election includes the 7 propositions that could be added as amendments to the Texas Constitution and the Coahoma $4 million bond that would create improvements to campus security, athletic facilities; roofing, and parking lots; as well as the construction of concessions and bathrooms; and the expansion of the Coahoma Elementary School gym and cafeteria foyer area.
Jodi Duck, Elections Administrator for Howard County, reminds everyone to bring their photo ID when you go to vote, and if you’re waiting to vote until November 7th she has some information that you might find useful.
"Be sure and contact our office or look at your voting card for your polling location," says Duck. "We've made a change for the north side this year; it has now been moved to Ryan Hall instead of the Sacred Heart Charities building where it has been."
According to Duck this not many people usually turn out for these kind of elections, so it’s important that everyone turns out to cast their vote because holds more weight in the election.
