Election Day Rundown

November 5, 2013 Joint General and Special Elections

Polls are open Tuesday, November 5, 2013 from 7am – 7pm

Today is the day (for Texans) to head to your nearest polling station and cast your vote in the Constitutional Amendment Election, as well as a Special Election for House District 50. In the Constitutional Amendment Election, there are several important items being considered, including Proposition 6, an amendment that proposes to create a $2 billion state fund to implement water projects across the state:

SJR 1 would create the State Water Implementation Fund as a special fund inside the state treasury and outside the General Revenue Fund. Money in the fund would be administered by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) and would be used to implement the state water plan, as adopted by general law, by TWDB.

The proposed amendment will appear on the ballot as follows: “The constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources.”

Head over to the Texas State Elections Office and ensure you are registered, find your local polling station, and make sure to bring your voter ID card with you when you go; that’s right, because of the Texas Voter ID Law (which was upheld recently by a Supreme Court Decision) you now need to have valid identification to vote in Texas.
