Hunt County – Today is the last day to register to vote for the May municipal elections. Statewide, voters will decide whether or not to allow the legislature to go over the state's spending cap, providing $14 billion to local school districts to complete the new public school financing plan. The measure will also include passing property tax cuts on to elderly and disabled homeowners who now have their property taxes frozen.
In addition to school board and city council elections, many districts have also called for bond issues. Commerce, Caddo Mills, Paris, Celeste, Emory-Rains, and Canton are among school districts in the area that have called for bond elections this May.
Check with your local county officials on where you can register to vote.
Early voting runs April 30th through May 8th.
