Today is Election Day!

Today's election features nine proposed constitutional amendments.

In addition to these proposals, a number of local races will be on the ballot, including trustee and bond elections at some community colleges. The proposed amendments don't directly affect higher education, but some could have financial implications for local districts.

Here is a very good summary and analysis, including the pros and cons, from the League of Women Voters. Most newspapers around the state are endorsing all nine.

Alvin ISD also is seeking permission to issue more than 200 million in bonds to build a third high school and much more. Read up on the details of the bond proposal here.

Read more and get out to vote.
