Surge noted in final day of early voting

— There was a last minute rush of Hunt County voters casting early ballots for Saturday’s municipal and special elections, including bonds for a new YMCA/event center in Greenville and alcohol sales in Campbell.

Polls will be open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday. A list of polling locations will be included in Saturday’s edition of the Herald-Banner.

Hunt County Elections Administrator Mina Cook said another 315 people cast early ballots Tuesday — the final day of early voting — in the City of Greenville elections, with another 50 ballots cast for the other elections across the county which are being conducted through Cook’s office.

A total of 1,101 people had voted early in the City of Greenville municipal and special elections, with 174 people casting early ballots in the other county races.

Voters in Greenville are casting votes for the Place 1 City Council race between incumbent Council member Dan Perkins and Tyson Cox,  whether to approve $12.6 million in bonds to pay for the reconstruction of nine local streets, whether to approve $15 million in bonds for a new YMCA/event center for Greenville and the fate of 30 proposed amendments to the City of Greenville Charter.

City Council races are also being held in the cities of Celeste, Lone Oak, Quinlan, Union Valley, and Wolfe City.

School board races are being conducted for the Caddo Mills, Campbell, Commerce and Lone Oak school districts.

Residents of the City of Campbell are deciding whether to use a portion of the sales tax revenue collected by the city to fix local streets, while a separate item on the ballot asks voters if they are in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in local stores.
