City of McKinney to host election night watch party May 4


Residents are invited to attend an election night watch party in downtown McKinney.

Election Night on the Square takes place from 6-10 p.m. May 4 at Dr. Glenn Mitchell Memorial Park, 300 W. Louisiana St.

This McKinney tradition began in 1998 and is a nod to election days of the past, Amy Rosenthal, director of McKinney Main Street and the McKinney Performing Arts Center, said in an email.

At the event, Mayor George Fuller will make announcements throughout the night and post election results the old-fashioned way by writing them on a chalkboard. The free family-friendly event also features live entertainment by E-Flat Porch Band, hot dogs and snow cones.

On May 4, McKinney residents will vote on three City Council seats, three McKinney ISD board of trustee seats, four Collin College board of trustee seats, five city bond propositions and two city charter amendments.
