Photo ID now required
The Nov. 5 election is the first statewide election where voters must bring a valid photo ID to the polls in order to cast their ballots.
On the ballot are nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, placed there in random order by Texas Secretary of State John Steen. Most Parker County residents will vote solely on the amendments, but others will also vote on additions to Emergency Service District No. 3 and ESD No. 7, as well as on bond elections in the Azle and Granbury school districts.
Election day poll sites for East Parker County — open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. — are listed below. The site for Precinct #440 has changed from Annetta City Hall to New Faith Baptist Church — one mile from the old poll site — because Annetta City Hall is no longer handicapped accessible.

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.
A second related proposition would commit the Annetta North territory to assuming a proportionate share of ESD No. 3’s outstanding debts and taxes should the first proposition succeed.
