Early voting runs Oct. 18-29 for the Nov. 2 general election. Here are five things New Braunfels ISD voters should know before heading to the polls.

1. What is on the ballot

Voters will consider three NBISD bond propositions on the Nov. 2 ballot. NBISD trustees called the election in August. The bond includes school construction, technology upgrades and stadium improvements.

The propositions are as follows:

  • Proposition A: The issuance of $321,300,000 of bonds by the New Braunfels Independent School District for school facilities, the purchase of necessary sites for school facilities, and the purchase of new school buses and the levying of a tax in payment thereof. This is a property tax increase.

  • Proposition B: The issuance of $20,100,000 of bonds by the New Braunfels Independent School District for various district stadiums and the imposition of a tax sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds. This is a property tax increase.

  • Proposition C: The issuance of $6,600,000 of bonds by the New Braunfels Independent School District for instructional technology and the imposition of a tax sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds. This is a tax increase.
