The historic $663.1 million, all-or-nothing bond package for Arlington schools and a contested Arlington school trustee race drew 1,668 people to vote in person on the first three days of early voting in the May 10 municipal elections.
In Fort Worth, 1,361 people voted by the end of Wednesday in a ballot that includes the $292 million bond package in seven proposals and renewal of the Crime Control and Prevention tax.
Arlington’s school bond package includes two new elementary schools, four districtwide centers, multipurpose activity centers for each high school and upgrades for transportation and security.
Fort Worth’s bond package is focused primarily on infrastructure and transportation, but also commits money to parks and community services, libraries and other needs. There is no tax increase planned for the Fort Worth bond.
In the race for Fort Worth City Council District 9, 209 people had voted through Wednesday.
In total, 6,911 voted in-person in elections run by the Tarrant County elections office through Wednesday.
