Let Your Voice Be Heard: Get Out and Vote on May 5

Dear DRC Members,

On Saturday, May 5th, Dallas County voters will elect the Dallas Independent School District trustee for District 9 and the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) trustee for District 7. Voters outside of Dallas County will be electing mayors, city councilmembers, and deciding bond elections across the region.

For the Dallas ISD District 9 trustee election, Dallas Kids First and EducateDallas PACs have endorsed Justin Henry and Edward Turner. No endorsements have been made in the DCCCD District 7 race.

Voting in local elections has an outsized impact. Past Dallas ISD trustee elections have been decided by as few as 400 votes. Last May, only 7.8% of registered voters in Dallas turned out to the polls, selecting the leaders who make decisions on behalf of the 2.55 million residents in Dallas County.

To vote:

Please remember to vote on Election Day on Saturday, May 5, and encourage your colleagues, friends, and family members to do so as well.

All best wishes,

President and CEO
Dallas Regional Chamber
