EAGLE PASS - Early Voting for the midterm elections is finally here, and School Board President Lupita Fuentes, who's seeking reelection, is inviting Maverick County residents to come out and vote.
Early voting will take place Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Multipurpose Center.
EPTXN spoke to Mrs. Fuentes Sunday afternoon, who was setting up her political signs and area outside the polls. Mrs. Fuentes said she's eager to speak with local voters and supporters come Monday morning.
The longtime school board trustee stressed the importance of voting in this election, saying "we cannot allow political groups influence the lives of our children."
Mrs. Fuentes is facing political newcomer Mayito Obregon, a local car salesman.
