For those lucky seniors who have turned eighteen since the gubernatorial elections, their first opportunity to vote begins on May 2.

Early voting for the Coppell Independent School District Board of Trustees elections of place 4 and 5 begins that day at 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. and continues during those hours until May 7. May 8 voting takes place between 1 and 6 p.m and May 9 and 10, 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The official election day is not until May 14 and votes will be taken from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is advisable to vote during the early voting period because there are limited places to vote on election, whereas early voting offers many options. Besides Town Center, which will be one of the few sites offering the election day voting, early voting can take place at several different precincts, including the Valley Ranch Public Library.

Among the candidates on the ballot are Tracy Fisher and Amy Dungan, both running for the Place 5 position.
