McKINNEY (May 5, 2015) — Election Day is Saturday, May 9 for McKinney voters. Registered voters will cast ballots to elect City Council representatives for District 2, District 4 and one At Large position to serve a four-year term. There are 14 total candidates for the three positions.
Registered voters can cast their ballots at any polling site listed on the Collin County website. District 2 and 4 representatives will be chosen by the voters in their respective districts. All McKinney voters can vote for the representative for the At Large position.
“The actions of the City Council members directly affect residents on a daily basis: roads and transportation issues, the building of parks and recreational facilities, businesses that come to the city, and taxes – just to name a few,” said Mayor Brian Loughmiller. “These decisions affecting your neighbors, property values and children deserve to be guided by elected officials who were installed by the majority.”
Election Night on the Square will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in front of City Hall, 222. N. Tennessee St. Collin County Judge Paul Raleeh will make announcements and post results throughout the evening. This family-friendly event also features food from Local Yocal and live entertainment by Academic Suspension. For more information please visit downtownmckinney.com or call 972-547-2660.
