Early voting begins Monday in House District 68 election
Early voting in the Texas House District 68 election begins Monday in Young County and will run for one week at two locations. Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation last Monday setting the date for a special election for HD68 in Texas.
The seat was vacated by Drew Springer who won the special runoff election for the Texas Senate District 30 position held in December. Candidates had until 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 4, to have their names placed on the special election ballot and must have filed with the office of the Texas Secretary of State.
Early voting in the election begins Monday, Jan. 11, and will run weekdays until Tuesday, Jan. 19, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Early voting will be held at Olney Community Library, 807 W. Hamilton, and at the North Central Texas College Graham campus, 928 Cherry St. Any registered Young County voter can vote at either location.
