Photo ID required to vote Nov. 5

Staff Reports

Tuesday, Nov. 5, marks the first statewide election where voters must bring photo identification to the polls in order to cast their ballots.

In the election, Parker County voters will weigh in on nine amendments to the Texas Constitution and expansions of both Emergency Services District No. 3 and ESD No. 7, as well as on bond issues for 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.

410  Willow Park police/fire dept.    101 Stagecoach Trail, Willow park

415  Willow Park municipal building    516 Ranch House Rd. Willow Park

430  Aledo Community Center          104 Robinson Ct. Aledo

435  Willow Park Baptist Church       129 S. Ranch House Road, Willow Park

440  New Faith Baptist              3303 West FM 5, Annetta

445  Parker County Precint Barn No. 4  1320 Airport Road, Aledo

450  Lakeshore Drive Baptist Church    200 S. Lakeshore Dr., Hudson Oaks

 

ESD No. 3 annexation

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 — about two square miles — 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.

Voters’ Guide

The nonpartisan League of Women Voters — Texas Education Fund Voters Guide for the Constitutional Amendment Election — with an explanation and arguments for and against each proposition plus helpful information on the new photo ID requirement and other aspects of voting — is available online at www.lwvtexas.org and www.VOTE411.org and distributed in print by local leagues and through many libraries.

A Constitutional Amendment page on www.lwvtexas.org provides more information on the constitutional amendment process and proposals considered by the 2013 Texas Legislature.
