On the ballot

On the ballot are nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, placed in random order by Texas Secretary of State John Steen.

ESD No. 3 annexation

In East Parker County residents within the boundaries of ESD No. 3 as well as residents living in a petitioned area in and around Annetta North will vote on whether to add the petitioned area to the ESD, a taxing entity. The proposed annexation area includes land inside the city limits of Annetta North — on the east and west ends — and land within the ETJs of both Annetta North and Weatherford.
