Saturday, May 7, is election day for local communities as Liberty County cities, schools, and special districts will be deciding who will represent them, along with a pair of constitutional amendments on the ballot.
On the ballot across the state of Texas is a Special Election related to a pair of propositions designed to assist Texas taxpayers with school taxes.
Locally voters in Ames, Cleveland, Daisetta, Dayton, and Hardin, as well as Cleveland, Hardin, and Hull-Daisetta ISD, and the Liberty County Hospital Dist. No. 1 will head to the polls.
Voters in Dayton will also be casting a ballot on six charter amendments, highlighted by a change to term limits from two to three years, which would be done on an at-large basis by getting rid of positions.
