Early voting underway for State and County General Election
Early voting for the November 8 General Election started October 24. The Sanger location is 101 Freese Street at the Sanger Community Center, but you can vote at any of the 49 locations
There are many hotly contested races on the ballot, including for Govenor (Abbot / O’Rourke); United States Rep. District 26 (Burgess / Kolls); Lieutenant Governor (Patrick / Collier); Attorney General (Paxton / Garza).
There is a Denton County Proposition A:
“THE ISSUANCE OF $650,000,000 GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS FOR CONSTRUCTING, IMPROVING, REPAIRING AND MAINTAINING ROADS, BRIDGES AND HIGHWAYS WITHIN DENTON COUNTY, INCLUDING CITY, STATE AND COUNTY STREETS, ROADS, HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES AND PARTICIPATION WITH FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL PUBLIC ENTITIES RELATED TO SUCH IMPROVEMENTS AND THE IMPOSITION OF A TAX SUFFICIENT TO PAY THE PRINCIPAL OF AND INTEREST ON THE BONDS.”
The ballot includes unopposed candidates, as well. In the past there has been some confusion about Sanger’s State Representative. Sanger resident, Dr. Lynn Stucky (District 64) represents most residents west of I-35 and Jared Patterson (District 106) boundary is most of Sanger east of I-35. See a zoom image of the new redistricting map for Sanger on page 5 for both candidates. Stucky and Patterson are unopposed.
