Halfway through early voting in the Nov. 5 election, 324 Wise County residents have cast their ballots.

Early voting runs 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through Nov. 1 at three Wise County locations: the Decatur Civic Center, 2010 W. U.S. 380; Rhome City Hall, 105 1st St.; and the Bridgeport Law Enforcement Center, 1000 Thompson St.

Voters are considering nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution.

Paradise ISD voters’ ballots also include an 8-cent tax increase, a $3.25 million bond election and two spots on the board of trustees.

Wise County Elections Administrator Lannie Noble said he has not heard of any issues related to the new law requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls. This is the first election in Wise County since the law took effect earlier this year. Signs have been posted at the voting locations explaining the new law.
