The Nov. 5 Election Is Coming Up. Here's What You Can Expect To See On Your Ballot.

Early voting for next month's election begins Oct. 21 and runs through Nov. 1. Throughout the state, voters will weigh in on 10 constitutional amendments. You can find a break down of each amendment here, and see a sample ballot here.

But apart from the constitutional amendments Texans will be voting on, there are also a few bond elections and local races that will appear on some West Texas ballots.

NOTE: If you don't see your county listed here, you'll only be voting on constitutional amendments and there won't be additional ballot items.
