Special Election Early Voting Starts April 24th.

Tarrant and Denton County voters are able to vote in the May 6th special sales tax election starting next Monday.   The early voting period takes place from April 24th through May 2nd.

An election brochure was delivered to homes the week of April 24th with information regarding the special election.

Earlier this year the Southlake Crime Control and Prevention District Board called for a special election to ask voters to consider a twenty-year continuance of the current 1/8 cent sales tax that supports crime control and prevention programs and capital purchases.

In calling the election, the Board also established strategies for the District that will be used to guide future District investments, should the continuation be approved by Southlake voters:

  • Achieve the highest standards of school safety and security through the School Resource Officer program.
  • Achieve the highest standards of safety and security through:
    public education, community engagement, and specialized programs that support a low crime rate and effective emergency response;
    modern technology and equipment; and, through a well-trained, well-equipped and professional police department
  • Invest to provide high quality public safety facilities.

The ballot language will read as follows:

“Whether the Southlake Crime Control and Prevention District should be continued for 20 years and the crime control and prevention district sales tax should be continued for 20 years.”

During early voting and on Election Day, all voters are required to present an approved form of identification.

On Election Day, May 6, 2017.  Southlake voters must go to their county precinct polling location on Election Day. You can find your county precinct by checking the appropriate county website. (DentonTarrant)
