 Less than two months before the March 4 primary, Attorney General Greg Abbott, the leading Republican candidate for governor, can often be found on the campaign trail discussing an issue other statewide Republican candidates have mostly avoided: an overhaul of public education.

Early voting continues this week in advance of the Nov. 5 election which will determine the fate of more the 12 million dollars in bonds.

Voters can cast ballots in Greenville, Commerce or Quinlan for the bond election over a state-wide election on amending the Texas Constitution.

Voters who live in certain areas of Hunt County may also be able to participate, with elections also being held  in Josephine and Cumby.

Voters need to make sure to have legal ID with them when casting ballots.
