Election Day

Nine Amendments to the Texas Constitution are up for a statewide vote on Nov. 5.

They include property tax cuts for the spouses of diseased veterans, elimination of a non-operational State Medical Education Board, extension of tax exemption of stored aircraft parts, authorization for reverse mortgage loans when purchasing a homestead property, creation of the State Water Implementation Fund, giving local elected officials the ability to appoint an alternate to finish their term, repealing a restriction on Hidalgo County which prevents it from creating a hospital district, and expanding sanctions assessed against judges.

Registered voters can cast their ballot at their district’s polling place provided they have a valid photo I.D. More information can be found at http://www.bexar.org.
