Early voting for the November 3rd General Election continues Saturday, October 24th from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m at the Sulphur Springs ISD Administration Building Board Room on Connally Street in the city. The board room may be accessed from the northside parking lot. Early voting at that location is open to all county residents. With early voting Saturday, residents have the opportunity to combine the Hopkins County Stew Contest at Buford Park, just blocks away to the west of the voting site, and the Corvette Show just blocks away to the east on Celebration Plaza.
There will be lots of changes for voters in Hopkins County, according to County Clerk Debbie Shirley. Beginning with the November 3 State Proposition Election, voters can cast ballots at any of the county’s 14 voter centers, six in the county and eight in Sulphur Springs. There will be no more paper ballots. All voting will be done electronically. Workers certified by the county will be present to assist voters as needed.
Voter centers will allow registered voters to cast a ballot at any one of the vote centers in the county. A sign “Vote Here” designates the sight. All county schools will house a voter center as will the county courthouse and regional civic center. Six other centers will be located inside the city limits of Sulphur Springs.
Propositions are on the general election ballot this year. North Hopkins trustee election will also be on the ballot. Those voting in the trustee election may vote at any of the polling places.
