Early voting continues for the Nov. 2 election, which includes a $95 million bond proposition in Lewisville to build a new public safety complex and eight statewide propositions.

After the first seven days of early voting, Denton County logged 6,324 in-person ballots and 1,089 mail-in ballots, according to Oct. 18-24 data from the elections administration office. That is a voter turnout of nearly 1.3% of the 571,755 total registered voters in Denton County.

Early voting continues from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 25-29 in Denton County. Voters may cast ballots during early voting at any polling location in Denton County. On Election Day on Nov. 2, voters must cast ballots at their precinct location. Polls will be open that day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visit the Denton County Elections website to find the correct precinct location on Nov. 2.

On the ballot in Lewisville is whether to authorize $95 million in bonds so that the city can build a new Lewisville Police Department headquarters, a new fire administration office and a new Central Fire Station. The new buildings will be located where the existing police and fire facilities are on Main Street and Valley Parkway. City officials said the bond’s passage will not affect the city’s property tax rate.

The eight state propositions ask about issues ranging from rodeo raffles to religious services to essential caregivers. Click here for an explanation on each proposition.
