November early election is underway; your vote matters
 


The November election will determine your next federal, state and county officials plus the Richardson ISD Tax Ratification Election and Collin County traffic bond. Early voting begins Oct. 22 and ends Nov. 2
Please vote and encourage your employees to vote! Employees are 65 percent more likely to vote based on the information received from their employers.
This year Richardson citizens like you will decide who will represent three Texas House Districts and an open Senate district.

You also will vote on Richardson ISD's tax proposal. RISD trustees have proposed a 13-cent tax increase for ratification on Nov. 6, which would raise the operating tax rate from $1.04 to $1.17.
State funding for Texas public schools has decreased dramatically over the past decade. A 13-cent increase would generate $24.8 million in operating funds. Homeowners with an average home value of $288,794 would see an increase of $305 per year, or $25.45 per month. Homeowners over 65 would be unaffected.

Molly Ulmer, chief governance officer at the Richardson Chamber, helped 57 GEICO employees register to vote in advance of the Nov. 2 election.
