On tomorrow’s ballot are 10 proposed constitutional amendments approved by the Texas legislature this spring. To review those, click here. Also on the ballot is a proposed tax increase for Emergency Services Dist. 3 (Canyon Lake Fire/EMS) that would increase in the maximum rate of the ad valorem tax imposed by Comal County Emergency Services District No. 3 from eight cents per one $100 valuation to a rate of ten cents per $100 valuation.

In January, Cynthia Jacqua, Comal County elections coordinator, said the new vote centers give residents greater flexibility about casting their ballots.

“This program still allows residents to vote at their neighborhood polling place, but also allows commuters and anyone with a busy schedule to vote wherever it is most convenient for them,” she said.
