Voting is this week from August (16th-18th) at Yantis High School from 8:00  am to 7:30 pm. Voting is also open Monday and Tuesday of next week (22nd & 23rd) from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. According to one voter, the School Board claims that “if the TRE passes Yantis ISD will receive $230,000 more each year from the State, [but] if the TRE fails they leave $230,000…in Austin.”

Voters are asked to attend a short presentation Tuesday August 16th at 5:30 pm at Yantis High School and Thursday August 18th at 6:00 pm at Yantis Elementary School.
