Final day of early voting today

GREENVILLE — Hunt County voters have one more day to cast their ballots early, ahead of Tuesday’s elections.

Today is the final day to vote early at the Hunt County Voter Administration Office, 2217 Washington Street in downtown Greenville. Voting will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. today.

More than 12,000 people had already voted early as of this morning.

The record total number of ballots cast during an early voting period in the county, 13,273, was set during the 2008 general elections.

Polls will be open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on election day.

A sample ballot and a list of polling locations will be included in the Herald-Banner Sunday and Tuesday.

Hunt County voters will 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 Boles 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 last month 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.
