Early Voting times, dates and locations announced

LITTLE ELM (April 12, 2017) Voters in Little Elm will march to the polls, starting on April 24 and concluding on May 6, to decide on one Council seat and on extending a program that funds the repair and maintenance of Town streets.

“Elections are one of the foundational aspects of our system of government,” says Town Secretary Kathy Phillips. “At every level of that system, we get to elect our representatives. We also get to decide on how our funds are used. Both of these come into play in Little Elm this year.”

While two Council seats are up for election, the incumbent in one, Stephanie Shoemaker in Place 6, is unopposed. The other seat, Place 1, is currently occupied by Mayor Pro Tem J. Michael McClellan. He is running against former Council member Curtis J. Cornelious for that position.

Also on the ballot is Proposition No. 1, the reauthorization of the one-fourth of one percent Sales and Use Tax for continued Street Maintenance. This program diverts a small portion of the tax already collected and sets that money aside for the repair and maintenance of Town neighborhood and collector streets.

First authorized in 2005, it has been reauthorized by large margins each time it has come up for election. The state law that created the program mandates that it be reauthorized by voters every four years.

Early Voting begins on Monday, April 24, and will continue through Tuesday May 2. Voters opting for Early Voting may do so at the Little Elm Library, 100 West Eldorado Parkway in the Town Hall Building.

The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday, April 24 to Saturday, April 29. There is no Early Voting on Sunday, April 30. Hours for Early Voting on Monday, May 1 and Tuesday, May 2 will be extended. On each of the two final days of Early Voting the polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Rules for Early Voting allow residents to cast ballots at any of the Early Voting locations in Denton County. Details can be found on the Denton County web site http://elections.dentoncounty.com and the Little Elm home page at www.littlele.org.

However, on Election Day, when polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., voters may only cast their ballots at their respective precinct locations. Individual precinct locations can be located at http://elections.dentoncounty.com or www.littleelm.org.
