Residents head to the polls today

Those who did not have a chance to vote in area municipal and school district elections will have one final opportunity today.

Residents can cast their ballot between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. today at the designated polling place for their precinct. Click here to locate your polling place and see a sample ballot.

All you need to bring to vote is some form of identification, such as your driver’s license, Texas ID, passport, utility bill or correspondence from a government agency.

Early voting concluded Tuesday and the turnout in one southern Denton County town broke all previous records, with 5,962 Flower Mound residents casting ballots in a hard fought race involving candidates with opposing views on how to deal with gas drilling near schools and neighborhoods.

 Here is a brief look at the races in our area:

Bartonville Mayor and two Town Council seats
Copper Canyon Town Council – three seats

Denton ISD Board – three seats
Flower Mound Mayor and two Town Council seats
Lantana FWSD #6 and #7 seats
Lewisville ISD Board – three seats

Flower Mound voters will also decide the fate of a proposal to purchase land and build a new soccer complex at Chinn Chapel and Waketon, and sell the existing complex on FM 407.

Lantana residents will head to Double Oak Town Hall to decide two Fresh Water Supply District board races. 

Two at-large seats are open in Lantana’s District #6, with incumbents Max Miller and Donna Robichaux seeking second terms on the board, along with newcomer Beka Weaver.

Incumbent Mike Shaw and Lantana residents Andrew W. Kloser, Robert Smith, and David J. Ware are vying for two at-large seats on the District #7 board of directors. This is the first election in District #7 since residents have moved into the district. Learn more about the #7 candidates here.

Bartonville voters will consider two propositions relating to the town’s sales tax rate: The reauthorization of the one quarter of one percent local sales tax for street maintenance and repair, and the creation of a permanent Crime Control and Prevention District with a proposed sales tax rate of one quarter of one percent.

If both propositions pass, Bartonville will have the maximum state allowed sales tax rate of 8.25%.

In Copper Canyon, a $2.5 million bond proposal for street and bridge improvements is on the ballot.

Election results will be posted on our website as they come in tonight.
