Bingo is a go in county
Future terms for Uvalde mayors will extend four years, the same length of time as Uvalde City Council representatives serve, and bingo is now legal across Uvalde County.
Those measures, as well as nine of the proposed 10 amendments to the Texas Constitution received support from Uvalde County voters, in Tuesday’s off-year election that saw a turnout rate of 11.2 percent percent. In Uvalde County, 1,891 of 16,878 registered voters cast ballots in the two-week early voting period, election day, or absentee balloting.
Voters also supported allowing incumbent city of Uvalde mayor Don McLaughlin to seek another term, this one under the new four-year plan. McLaughlin was first elected in May of 2014 and has been elected to three two-year terms. The city charter previously prohibited a person from serving more than three consecutive terms in a single office.
On Friday, 118 voted early by personal appearance; Thursday, Oct. 31, 58; Wednesday, Oct. 30, 46; Tuesday, Oct 29, 83; Monday, Oct. 28, 42; Friday, Oct. 25, 40; Thursday, Oct. 24, 46; Wednesday, Oct. 23, 44; Tuesday, Oct. 22, 36; and Monday Oct. 21, 25.
