SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) – Election day is Tuesday in Texas, and this election includes big decisions for the town of Sherman.
For Sherman voters, there are strong local races on the ballot.
The first being the race for mayor; between outgoing president David Plyler, mayor since 2011 and city councilor Sandra Melton.
Then the race to fill two seats on the grand council. For Place 1, it’s local business owner Henry Marroquin versus former Sherman City Councilor Kevin Couch. For Place 2, local business owner Andre Luper faces financial adviser Juston Dobbs.
“Local elections are really the most important because they have the greatest impact,” said Tamie Hayes, Election Administrator for Grayson County. “What you do, where you play, where you work, all of these decisions.”
Hayes encourages voters to read Texas Statewide Amendments 1-8, including:
- STATE OF TEXAS PROPOSAL 1: Potential changes to the charitable rules of the Professional Rodeo Association

- STATE OF TEXAS PROPOSAL 8: Modifications to widows’ homes due to military service
In addition to the proposals, a school requirement at Pilot Point that would spend $ 38 million on a new transportation hub, renovating school buildings and purchasing a new property.
“We have provisions in place,” said Hayes. “So we can help you vote if you’re from another country, you can vote provisionally, limited ballots – anyway, we’ll help you vote.”
There will also be curbside voting available for those who cannot leave their vehicle.
“We’ll take the machine to the car, so you can vote there. We do this on all of our sites, all ballots are available. “
Hayes says she anticipates a high turnout and there will be plenty of workers there to help out if you need them.
