Early voting begins Monday for the Mexia ISD school board and bond election. Every registered voter in Mexia ISD has eight days to cast a ballot. That's a total of 68 hours the polls will be open. There is no reason to not vote.
Every vote will play a role in deciding who helps lead the district as a school board member – Jackie Craig or Israel Flores. Every vote will play a role in deciding the future of our campus facilities.
Mexia has been very quiet over the issue of the bond package. A quiet community should imply that everyone knows what is at stake, knows the pros and cons on both sides and has a firm handle on how where they stand on the issue.
If we have a high voter turnout – in favor or against the bond package – then we can at least say the community took a stand. But if voters are going to ignore this election because the issue is not something they understand, or want to learn about, then we are making a monumental mistake.
