Early voting starting today for November 6 elections

GREENVILLE — Starting Monday, Hunt County residents will have a say in who will be the next president of the United States, who will be their next senator or congressional representative and, in some cases, who will represent them on the Hunt County Commissioners Court, city council or school board.

Early voting for the November 6 general election, and a handful of other elections, begins Monday and will continue through November 2.

Voting will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays at the Hunt County Voter Administration Office, 2217 Washington Street in downtown Greenville. Early voting will also be scheduled at the office between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday, October 27; between 1 and 3 p.m. Sunday, October 28 and between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 1.

The race to see who will be the President of the United States will be at the top of the ballot. Incumbent President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party candidate, is facing Republican Mitt Romney, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The U.S. Senate contest features Republican Ted Cruz facing Democrat Paul Sadler, Libertarian John Jay Myers and Green Party candidate David B. Collins.

Hunt County voters will also get to help decide who will be the next U.S. Representative from House District 4. The contest is between incumbent US. Representative Ralph Hall (R-Rockwall), Democrat VaLinda Hathcox of Sulphur Springs and Libertarian Party candidate Thomas Griffing of Dallas.

The race for Hunt County Commissioner Precinct 1 is between Republican Eric Evans and Democrat Jerry Minter.

Republican incumbent Constable for Precinct 1 Terry Jones will be facing Democrat Glenn Stone.

And incumbent Constable for Precinct 2, Democrat Wayne “Doc Pierce, is facing Republican Charles Adams.

Residents served by the Boles and Cumby Independent School Districts will be voting for their boards of trustees, and voters in West Tawakoni will be casting ballots for their city council.

Robert Cruthird, Linda Pitts, Laura Sweeney, Gary Pitts and Jason Monroe are vying for four, four-year terms on the Board ISD board. William Bacon is unopposed in seeking a two-year unexpired term on the board.

Four people are seeking two places on the Cumby Independent School District board of trustees. Angie Allen, Renee Seely, Tammy Giles and David Tremor are vying for the three-year terms.

Jack Schultz and Calvin Travers are competing for the post of Mayor of West Tawakoni, while Pete Yoho and Laura Beckett are in the race for Place 2 on the West Tawakoni City Council.

Carol Solomon’s name is listed as unopposed in seeking the Place 4 spot on the council. However, Solomon was removed from the council Friday after a Hunt County jury found her guilty of one count of official misconduct. Although Solomon is not legally able to hold the office, it was too late to remove her name from the ballot.
