Grimes County will experience a first come this May's election. Qualified voters will be able to vote in three different elections at one polling site for the first time.

In May, all Grimes County registered voters will be deciding on an amendment that would rollback a cap on school taxes. And some voters will also be voting on city and school district elections at the same time.

A bill passed last year by the Texas legislature allows the county to combine school district and city elections if they come to an agreement. The cities and school districts of Anderson and Navasota decided to combine their elections with the county's.

Rebecca Duff is the Grimes County Elections Administrators, and says all three entities will benefit from the partnership.

"It cuts down on the cost for the county and the city and the school to all jointly share in the cost," Duff said.

Voters will be able to vote at consolidated polling sites on May 12th.
