The long awaited chance to vote early in the Victoria ISD Trustee General & Special election is now here. Early Voting in Person for Trustees 1 & 3 is open on weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Main Early Voting Polling Place located at 111 N. Glass.

The Victoria ISD's election is a combination of the normal General Election in which trustees for districts 3 & 5 were to be on the ballot and a Special Election in which the un-expired term of trustee district 1 was added to the ballot. Only one person filed for trustee district 5 and so that part of the General Election was cancelled. The other part of the General election is trustee district 3. Two candidates are vying for this seat on the board. Registered voters in Victoria ISD who reside in election precincts; 15, 16, 18, 20, 21 22, 23, 24 & 31 are eligible to vote in this election.

The Special election is being held for the un-expired term of trustee district 1. Again two candidates are seeking to fill this board position. Registered voters in Victoria ISD who reside in election precincts; 1, 2, 3, 8, 14, 34 & 35 are eligible to vote in this election.

So far the turnout has not been outstanding. The first three days of early voting found only twenty-five voters making their way to early voting. So I am making an appeal to the residents of these two districts, come vote.

The candidates want you to come out and participate and so do the election workers. Your presence is requested.

Early Voting in Person is being held weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Elections Office located at 111 N. Glass in downtown Victoria. The last day to vote early in person is Tuesday, May 10th, so don't delay. Election Day is Saturday, May 14th.
