MIDLAND/ODESSA, Texas (KMID/KPEJ) – Early voting continued on Tuesday, but not without some struggle, as the Midland County Annex announced that early voting was to be closed due to a power outage. Luckily, the power was restored a short time later and voting was able to continue. Voters will be able to cast votes tomorrow, until 5pm.
Voters can also head to the Centennial Library, Midland College, Fairmont Park Church of Christ, or Manor Park to vote early.
If voting in Midland, there will be a big school bond on the ballot, with Midland ISD asking voters to say yes or no to one proposition, valued at $1.4 billion.
