Voters Set to Decide Elections Tuesday

Join News 3 and KBTX.com for election results throughout the evening, including on 10 at Ten.

Polls will open at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday for the 2013 elections in Texas, including local races for city and school board posts.

Voters can cast their ballots until 7:00 p.m.

In Brazos County, some 3,500 of the nearly 89,000 registered voters went to the polls in the two-week early voting period that wrapped up Friday, according to County Clerk Karen McQueen.

Voters will be required to go to their assigned precinct as opposed to early voting, where they could choose any of five locations. New Voter ID laws are in effect, so an approved form of identification like a driver's license will be needed to vote.

Bryan voters will decide three seats on the city council, including mayor. College Station has just one contested race for council. Each of the twin cities have one contested school board race, but in College Station, an $83.5 million bond issue is also on the ballot.

All Texans have nine propositions to decide, including Proposition 6, which would create a fund for water projects using $2 billion from the state's Rainy Day Fund.
