Erath County voters can finally head to the polls as early voting gets underway.

Polls will be open at the Erath County Courthouse from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. today through Friday and 12-4 p.m. Sunday.

Polls will be open at the courthouse and Dublin Annex from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Feb. 26 - March 2.   

Erath County Clerk Gwinda Jones says she is expecting a large turnout due to the fact that there are five locally contested races on the ballot. 

“I’m expecting a good turnout,” she said. “It’s a really long ballot and there are propositions for both parties so it’s going to take a little longer to vote.” 

Jones is reminding voters to show up at the polls with identification.

Election day is Tuesday, March 6. 

A candidate must get 51% of the vote to win otherwise there will be a runoff on Tuesday, May 22.
