Voter registration deadline approaching; early voting begins next month

by | Mar 23, 2023 | Area news, Latest

Residents who intend to vote in the general election Saturday, May 6, need to be registered by Thursday, April 6.

Early voting begins Monday, April 24, and runs through Tuesday, May 2.

In Texas, eligible voters must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of the county where the application is submitted, at least 17 years 10 months old at the time of application and 18 years old on Election Day, not declared mentally incapacitated and not a convicted felon unless certain eligibility requirements are met.

Voter registration applications can be found online at sos.state.tx.us and must be filled out and returned to the Collin County Voter Registrar’s Office

Farmersville ISD has three places on the board of trustees up for election: Place 6 held by Brian Brazil, Place 7 held by Jason McTee and Place 5 formerly held by Tommy Monk who resigned in Sept. 2022.

Incumbents McTee and Brazil have submitted their applications for re-election.

For Place 5, Jim Hemby and Kiel Cathey have filed, creating a contested race.

Terms expiring on Farmersville City Council are Place 1, held by Craig Overstreet and Place 3, held by Ted Wagner.

Wagner is running unopposed, while Mary Berry, Richard Repp and Coleman Strickland have filed for Place 1.

Farmersville residents in the city limits and extra-territorial jurisdiction will also vote in a special election to approve the formation of a municipal development district (MDD).

The election will include a proposition to create the MDD and a proposition to repeal and discontinue the current Type B economic development corporation. The passage of this proposition is necessary in order to change the tax revenue of one-half of 1% sales tax to be directed to the MDD instead of Type B.

Both the passage of the MDD proposition and repeal of the Type B are contingent upon each other according to city officials.

Three positions on the Collin College Board of Trustees will be on the ballot.

Place 1 pits incumbent Fred Moses against challenger Megan Wallace. The race for Place 2 has incumbent Jay Saad running against two challengers: Scott Coleman and Philip Timmons. Place 3 also has three competitors: incumbent Stacey Donald and challengers Cathie Alexander and Joe Minissale.
