Frisco voters will have different hours for early voting, depending on whether they reside in Collin County or Denton County.

Voters can begin casting ballots at 7 a.m. Oct. 13 at Denton County early voting locations and at 8 a.m. Oct. 13 at Collin County early voting locations. While those heading to the polls in either county will be able to cast ballots at any polling location within their county during early voting, there are a limited number of polling locations in the city of Frisco itself for each county.

Collin County early voting locations in Frisco are:

• Collin College Frisco Campus conference room, 9700 Wade Blvd.;

• Frisco Fire Station No. 8 training room, 14700 Rolater Road; and

The Collin County early voting hours for the Nov. 3 election will be:

Voters in Collin County will be able to check the estimated wait time at each location by visiting the county website, but Denton County does not yet offer that option. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in both counties on Election Day.

In addition to contested races at the county, state and federal levels, the Nov. 3 ballot will also include a pair of contested races for Frisco City Council and one contested race for the Frisco ISD Board of Trustees.

With City Council Place 5 incumbent Tim Nelson reaching his term limit this year, seven candidates have filed to run for his open seat in the election. Rob Cox, Hava Johnston, Ram Majji, Josh Meek, Ruan Meintjes, Laura Rummel and Dan Stricklin will all appear on the ballot for the Place 5 seat. A candidate Q&A for the Place 5 candidates can be viewed here.

Place 6 incumbent Brian Livingston drew two challengers in his bid to serve a second term on the council. Voters will choose from among Livingston, Sadaf Haq and Sai Krishna in the election. A candidate Q&A for the Place 6 candidates can be viewed here.

Frisco’s mayor position was also up for re-election this year, but Jeff Cheney drew no opponents during the filing period earlier this year. On the FISD board, Debbie Gillespie also was unopposed in her re-election bid for the Place 5 seat.

The only other FISD board seat up for election, the Place 4 position, saw four candidates file to run after incumbent Anne McCausland announced she would not seek re-election. Dynette A. Davis, Muni Janagarajan and Amit Kalra are each still seeking election to that board post, while candidate Sean Heatley announced last month he was withdrawing from the race.
