A breakdown of what’s on the ballot this election season

Voters walk to and from the polls on March 3 at the Tarrant County Subcourthouse in Arlington. 

Early voting in Texas starts Oct. 13, ahead of the Nov. 3 general election.

The Maverick Activities Center is designated as an early voting location. Registered voters must present an acceptable form of photo ID in order to vote.

Tarrant County residents registered outside of Arlington can view their sample ballot on the county website. Here’s a breakdown of what Arlington voters can expect to see on their ballots.

Arlington Independent School District Special Election

AISD Proposition A

AISD Proposition A concerns the ratification of the $1.3871 ad valorem tax rate for the current year. The proposed tax rate would increase teacher and staff pay, and grant access to nearly $18 million in additional state funding, according to the district’s website.

If approved by voters, the total tax rate would increase 8.84 cents. The tax rate would cost the average homeowner, with a home valued at $208,985, an additional $162.70 annually, or $13.56 a month, according to the district’s website. Taxpayers over 65 years old would see no tax increase unless they make substantial improvements to their homes, according to the website.

City of Arlington Special Election

City of Arlington Proposition A

Proposition A is for the voter-approved adoption of the sales tax increase from 8% to 8.25%.

Texas allows up to 2% local sales and uses tax above the state rate of 6.25%. Arlington currently has 0.25% of local sales tax capacity available.

If approved, the increase will help promote and develop new and expanded businesses, enterprises and community redevelopment, according to the sample ballot.
