Voting Nov. 2 for TX Amendments

HARRIS COUNTY – Voting will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 2 for a ballot that has attracted little interest among early voters.

The ballot contains 8 propositions to amend the state constitution, but most feel these are minor issues, and voter turnout is low.

The amendments deal with the following issues: taxes, gambling, bond issues, religious services, healthcare, constitutional rights, and veterans services.

Voting hours are 7 am to 7 pm on election day. Voting locations include BakerRipley EA campus, Hardy St. Senior Center, Anclamars Reception Hall, Lone Star College Victory Center, and the Harris County Administration Building on Preston Avenue in downtown.

To date, 90,000 persons have voted early, 45,000 in person and 45,000 by mail-in ballots.
