Low Turnout in Special Election
Schleicher County voters stayed home in droves Tuesday as a mere 100 of their fellow citizens turned out to cast ballots in the November 7th Special Election to decide the fate of seven proposed amendments to the Texas State Constitution.
Local voters cast their ballots as follows:
Providing certain disabled veterans or their surviving spouses with property tax exemptions.
Authorizing several changes to current standards surrounding home equity.
Limiting the service of certain appointed officeholders after the expiration of the person’s term of office.
Requiring a court to provide notice to the attorney general of a challenge to a state statute.
Permitting professional sports team charitable foundations to conduct charitable raffles.
Providing a property tax exemption to the surviving spouse of a first responder who is either killed or fatally injured in the line of duty.
Permitting credit unions and other financial institutions to award prizes to promote savings.
