Early voting numbers


According to early voting numbers, both propositions under ESD 7 are currently favored, with each proposition receiving more than 75 percent of votes early. 

Regarding the annexation of ESD 7, voters so far are in favor of the annexation itself, 83.7 percent to 16.2 percent, while the race for proposition two regarding the assumption of the land’s outstanding debts and taxes remains tight, 53.3 percent to 46.6 percent.

Under ESD 6, voters so far have shown approval of both propositions regarding the annexation and assumption of land and debts.

Approval of a $7 million Peaster ISD school bond is looking promising, as 65 percent of voters have gone in favor of the proposal so far.

All three propositions for the legal sale of alcohol (one in Hudson Oaks, two in Aledo) have so far gathered supporters, with 86 percent of voters saying yes to Hudson Oaks sales and at least 65 percent of voters approving both propositions for Aledo.
