Today, May 7, polls are open in Stephens County for the Texas Constitutional Amendment Special Election.

The only items on the ballot are two proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution, both having to do with property taxes. Proposition 1 would limit school property taxes paid by the disabled and elderly, and Proposition 2 would increase the homestead exemption for school property taxes from $25,000 to $40,000.

For the exact wording of the propositions, click here for the Texas Secretary of State’s explanation.

Additionally, the League of Women Voters of Texas, a non-partisan organization, has published a voters guide for the election. It includes information about constitutional amendments, the voting process, and, on pages 5 and 6, details about the two proposed amendments, including the pros and cons of each one. Click here for that guide.

There will be another election later this month, the runoff election for the Primary Election that took place earlier this year. That election will be on May 24, and the ballot will include a runoff between State Rep. Glenn Rogers and Mike Olcott for State Representative District 60, as well as several statewide runoffs. Early voting for that election will be held May 16-20.
