According to unofficial early voting totals released by the Wise County Elections Office Wednesday afternoon, there’s one city/school district where hundreds have already voted. The Decatur School Board and Decatur City Council joint election drew 935 voters during the seven days of early voting, which ended Tuesday. Three places on the city council and two places on the school board feature contested races, and interest in the races appears to be high based on the early voting numbers. To put it in perspective, the last time a school bond issue — the type of proposition that usually draws the heaviest voter turnout — was put in front of Decatur voters on the May ballot (2015), a total of 856 people voted. In other communities, this year’s early vote totals are as follows: Alvord School Board, 91; Aurora City Council/Northwest School Board,  102; Bridgeport City Council, 177; and Chico City Council, 71. Election day is Saturday.
