Voting will be conducted from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Election Day, Saturday, May 4, in the high school gymnasium in the MGISD bond election.

Miller Grove ISD voters are asked to consider approving a $2 million bond election for a new multipurpose facility to be used as an elementary gymnasium, fine arts area with UIL approved stage, concessions and kitchen area; restrooms; and space for future classrooms, weight and locker rooms. Approving the bond would mean a $0.14 per $100 property value increase to the debt portion of the school tax rate.
