Tuesday is the final day for early voting before the May 4 municipal elections.

Bond elections are on the table in several locations, including the $1.25 billion bond proposal the City of Dallas is putting to voters. As previously reported by The Dallas Express, the City of Dallas 2024 Bond Program  includes several notable projects, such as:

Improvements to city traffic safety through the Vision Zero initiative.

Improvements and repairs to 15 cultural centers in the city, including more than $8 million for the Majestic Theatre, $9 million for the Kalita Humphreys Theatre, $7.3 million for the Meyerson Symphony Center, and over $75 million for the Dallas Art Museum.

Allocations totaling $90 million for improvements to public safety buildings, including improvements at police and fire stations and training facilities for law enforcement and first responders. For example, nearly $17 million would fund the replacement of Fire Station 43, originally built in 1958.

The election results could also significantly impact schools in the region. Contested school board elections will occur in 30 districts, and bond elections will be held in nine.

For example, Anna ISD in northern Collin County is asking for $100 million to build a new football stadium. The new complex would hold up to 12,000 people and include a 150-person community room. It would replace the current 4,600-seat stadium, which the district says can not be expanded further.

Election Day is Saturday, May 4, 2024, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
