Early voting underway

by | Apr 26, 2023 | Latest

Farmersville residents will continue heading to polling places this week ahead of Election Day.

Early voting began statewide Monday, April 24, and will conclude Tuesday, May 2. Election day will be held Saturday, May 6.

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, Ryan Calender, 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 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.

Residents will also have their say on the Collin College Board of Trustees, which has three places on the ballot: Place 1, Place 2 and Place 3. Trustees are elected to six-year terms with an election held in odd years.

Fred Moses currently holds Place 1, a position he has held since 2017. He is running for re-election against Megan Wallace.

Jay Saad, the current board vice president, has held Place 2 since 2019. He is opposed by Scott Coleman and Philip Timmons.

Stacey Donald holds Place 3 and has also been in the position since 2017. Donald has filed for re-election and faces two challengers — Cathie Alexander and Joe Minissale — in the race.

Individuals currently not registered to vote can do so through their county registrar depending on their county of residents. Collin County residents should register at collincountytx.gov/elections.

The last day to register to vote for the May election is April 6. Early voting by personal appearance will begin April 24 and end May 2 and Election Day is May 6.

The first day to apply for a ballot by mail using Application for a Ballot by Mail (ABBM) was Sunday, January 1. The last day to Apply for Ballot by Mail (received, not postmarked) is April 25.

Times and locations for early voting have yet to be determined but residents can cast their ballot at any location in the county in which they are registered to vote.

Early voting across Collin County will be held 8 a.m.-5 p.m. through Saturday, April 29. There will be no early voting Sunday, April 30.

Polls will open again Monday, May 1, at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. with the same hours for Tuesday, May 2.

Collin County residents can check early voting locations and other information at collincountytx.gov/elections.
