Gilmer’s Local Option Alcohol Election will be conducted 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 10.

Two propositions are on the ballot:

1. “The legal sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption only.”

2. “The legal sale of mixed beverages in restaurants by food and beverage certificate holders only.”

On election day, the polling place will be at Gilmer High School, 850 Buffalo St.

Early voting by personal appearance will be conducted each weekday, Monday through Friday, at the Gilmer ISD Administration Building at 500 South Trinity St. (Corner of Trinity and Warren Sts.).

The early voting will be between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., begin Monday, April 28 and ending on May 6. There will be extended hours on Monday, May 5, and Tuesday, May 6, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Applications for ballot bymail must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 1, in the office of Judy Moore, Early Voting Clerk, 500 South Trinity St.

Gilmer will not have a city council election, since the incumbents were all unopposed.

However, it will have the election on the two alcohol-related propositions. The city contracted with the school district to hold the election at the two school locations, the administration building for early voting and the high school on election day.
