LCS: Early voters slow to turnout in election
Voting results for the election were not available at press time due to a Monday deadline. Results will be available in the next edition of the Lake Country Sun.
Palo Pinto County’s early voting turnout remained low county-wide through the end of early voting in the Graford ISD bond election and Constitutional Amendment Election.
Palo Pinto County hosted early voting for two weeks at three locations in the county. A total of 405 voters had voted early in the election in the first week of early voting, according to Palo Pinto County Assistant Elections Administrator Savannah Trevino.
Early voting ended Friday, Nov. 1, and the county had 910 votes or 5% of the 18,183 registered voters in the county.
Registered voters in the Graford school district zone had the opportunity to approve or deny the issuance of a $49,600,000 bond for a new campus by GISD and levying the tax in payment thereof. If approved, the tax rate for GISD will rise $0.22 from $1.11 per $100 valuation last year to $1.33 per $100 valuation for the 2019-2020 school year.
The rest of the county has 10 ballot measures approved in the 86th Legislative Session to vote on.
