Election Day for Many Local Communities

Residents of rural communities in the Brazos Valley are heading to the polls Saturday to elect city and school officials and decide bond issues.

Polls will be open until 7:00 p.m. in all counties in the area except for Brazos, where there are no elections.

In total, close to 40 positions will be decided. The most are for school boards, though there are some city council positions being decided as well.

Bond issues will be decided for Huntsville, Franklin and Anderson-Shiro school districts.

In Huntsville, there ballot item is for a $65 million bond, the majority of which would be spent on a new school for 6th through 8th graders.

Franklin's bond up for approval is for $12 million for rehab and expansion of buildings.

Three different bond propositions are on the ballot for Anderson-Shiro CISD, the biggest being for $4.7 million for new athletics facilities. A $1.7 million bond mainly for elementary school updates and a $1.4 million bond for a transportation facility are also being voted on.
