A pair of Guadalupe County communities will head to the polls this week and the following week to decide on whether those area school districts will get upgrades to their campuses, elect the trustees to govern one of those districts; as well as the alderman and mayor who are vying for the chance to watch over their city.

If you live in either the Seguin ISD boundaries, Marion ISD or Marion city limits it is your right and civic duty to get out there and vote.

It is through the local elections that your voice is clearly heard.

If you like the way things are you can vote to keep them that way.

If you don’t, it is your right to let it be known that something needs to change.

All of that is done with a press of the button.

And no, not those that are on the keyboard of the computer. The ones that matter are at the polling locations.

The entities holding elections try to make it as easy as possible to cast those votes.

In Marion, visit the Marion Community Library either during early voting or on election day for both the city and school district elections.

In Seguin, there are seven locations — Seguin ISD Administration Office, A.J. Briesemeister Middle School, Jim Barnes Middle School, Jefferson Elementary, Patlan Elementary, McQueeney Elementary and Vogel Elementary.

Early voting runs from Monday, April 22 to Friday, April 26 and Monday, April 29 to Tuesday, April 30. Election Day is Saturday, May 4.

If you don’t vote, your voice will not be heard where it counts.

Our Voice is the opinion of the editorial board of the Seguin Gazette.
