Election monitor heading to Midlothian
The Ellis County Press
MIDLOTHIAN – The Secretary of State’s office is sending an election monitor to Midlothian for Saturday’s election, according to Kim Thole of the SOS office in Austin.
Midlothian is the second Ellis County city to request and obtain SOS election monitors. Ennis was approved for one last week.
In both cities, concerns over handling of ballot boxes and integrity of election day votes were brought to Daryl Spence, Ennis city marshal candidate, and Midlothian Councilman Ken Chambers, place 3, who specifically requested the monitor on behalf of two council challengers he has endorsed.
Both cities use paper ballots.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
