Voters to consider state amendments, H’wick offices

Donley County voters are set to consider seven proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution and Howardwick citizens determine who will fill two city offices when the 2017 general election is held next Tuesday, November 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The proposed amendments are discussed in an article on page eight this week.

Mayor Pro-Tem Eric Riddle is on the Howardwick ballot to fill the remainder of the mayor’s term, and he is being challenged by Greta Byars. Howardwick voters also have one unexpired city council seat to fill. That position, formerly held by Sam Grider, is being sought by Doc Holladay and Jada Murry.

Early balloting for the Howardwick races will continue through November 3 at Howardwick City Hall.
County voters can cast early ballots in the Constitutional amendment election also through November 3 by personal appearance at the Donley County Courthouse Annex.

On Tuesday, county voters can cast ballots at the following locations. Check your voter registration card for your polling box. Box 101 – Clarendon College Bairfield Activity Center, Box 102 – Howardwick City Hall, Box 201 – County Courthouse, Box 301 – Assembly of God Fellowship Hall, Box 303 – Hedley First Baptist Church, and Box 401 – Clarendon Church of Christ Family Life Center.
