Polls open at 8 a.m. Oct. 18 for early voting in the Nov. 2 election.

Lewisville voters will decide whether to authorize $95 million in bonds to build a new public safety complex. The complex would include a new Lewisville Police Department headquarters, a new Lewisville Fire Administration office and a new Central Fire Station. All will be located where the existing police and fire facilities are on Main Street and Valley Parkway.

Among the features of the proposed 116,000-square-foot space are a hardened emergency operation center, backup power generation, an expanded Central Fire Station and a two-story parking garage.

City officials say that passage of the bond measure would not affect the city’s property tax rate due to its existing capacity for debt payments under the current rate and the low interest rates available for municipal bonds.

Also on the ballot are eight state propositions with issues ranging from rodeo raffles to religious services to essential caregivers. Click here for an explanation on each proposition.

Polls are open for early voting from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 18-22 and from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Oct. 25-29. Denton County voters may cast a ballot at any polling location in the county during the early voting period.

On Election Day on Nov. 2, Denton County voters must cast ballots at their designated precinct.
