by | Oct 27, 2022 | Latest

Early voting for the November midterm elections continues, as voters cast their ballots for multiple races at the county, state and federal level.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 24, voters began casting their ballots ahead of the anticipated Election Day crowds. Early voting will close Friday, Nov. 4. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

At the state level, Republican Greg Abbott faces his Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke for the governor’s seat. In the lieutenant governor’s race, Republican Dan Patrick faces Mike Collier, who is running as the Democratic nominee.

Voters will also have their say in the race for attorney general. Two-term Republican Ken Paxton is opposed by the Democratic candidate Rochelle Mercedes Garza. In the race for State Comptroller, Glenn Hegar is opposed by Janet T. Dudding.

Wylie residents will also vote for their state representative and senator. Those living in Collin County will vote in the race for District 33 in the Texas House of Representatives, which pits Republican Justin Holland against Democratic challenger Graeson Lynskey.

In State Senate District 8 Republican Angela Paxton faces off against Democratic nominee Jonathan Cocks.

Voters who reside within the boundaries of District 89 for the Texas House of Representatives will not cast a ballot because Candy Noble is running unopposed.

At the county level, voters will cast ballots for county judge and district clerk.

In the race for Collin County Judge, Republican incumbent Chris Hill is opposed by Democratic nominee Joshua Murray. In the district clerk race, Republican Mike Gould faces Democrat Greg Brignac.

Residents will also vote for their U.S. Representative for District 3 which pits former Collin County Judge, Republican Keith Self, against Democratic nominee Sandeep Srivastava.

In Murphy, voters will also have their say on charter amendments and those in Wylie ISD will also have their say in four races for the Wylie ISD Board of Trustees.

In Place 1, incumbent Stacie Smith is opposed by Jill Palmer. The race for Place 2 pits former Wylie East High School Principal Mike Williams against Jeffrey Keech.

In the race for Place 5, former Wylie High School principal and current Wylie Preparatory Academy employee Virdie Montgomery against Kevin Brooks for Place 5. The final race for Place 6 pits incumbent Jacob Day against Michael Schwerin.

Plano ISD voters will decide on five propositions, A-E, totaling approximately $1.5 billion for funding for staff and programs, school renovations and safety, instructional technology, event center, and safety and maintenance at stadiums.

Early voting continues throughout this week — Oct. 24-28 — and Sunday, Oct. 30. For voters heading to polling places Saturday, Oct. 29, and Oct. 31-Nov. 4, voting locations will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
