Early voting ends Friday

October 30, 2013

Early voting for the Nov. 5 General Election will continue through Friday.

Several local races and issues are on the ballot, including Granbury City Council, Granbury and Tolar school board of trustees and an $85 million bond question for renovations and additions to GISD campuses.

Last week, early voters cast 1,592 ballots, according to Elections Administrator Jenise “Crickett” Miller. Of those, 299 were cast at temporary branch sites at GISD campuses.

Miller said that the turnout was larger than that of more recent elections. She attributed the voter traffic to hotly contested Granbury City Council races.

Early voting will take place at Annex 1, 1410 W. Pearl St., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and from 7 to 7 Thursday and Friday. Polls will also be manned in the foyer at Granbury High School from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.

Polls on Tuesday – Election Day – will be open from 7 to 7.

Information about the current election – including nine state propositions and a list of polling locations – can be found on the elections page of the county’s website, www.co.hood.tx.us.

On Saturday, the Hood County News will republish a candidate Q&A with the 11 candidates who are vying for the mayor, Place 2 and Place 4 positions on the Granbury City Council.
