If transportation woes are the thing keeping you from the polls this election weekend, DART is the solution.
Dallas Area Rapid Transit is providing free rides to polling locations May 6, Saturday, the date City of Dallas residents will elect City Council members and, presumably, reelection unopposed incumbent mayor Eric Johnson.
“Voters can ride at no charge on all DART buses, trains, GoLink, the Dallas Streetcar, Paratransit Services and the TRE between EBJ Union Station and CentrePort/DFW Airport Station,” DART announced.
To participate, bring your valid voter registration card. GoLink riders can use promo code VOTE23 at checkout for a complimentary Adult Local Day Pass in the DART GoPass app on May 6. Learn more at dart.org/vote.
Now that that’s covered, if you live in D10, don’t let anything silence your opinion about our neighborhood’s representation for the next two years. Lake Highlands residents already began early voting last week.
On Election Day, May 6, voters are required to cast their ballots at their assigned polling place. This is a change from early voting, where registered voters are able to go to any Dallas County voting location.
Check your voter registration status or see your assigned polling place here.
In Lake Highlands, Adam McGough is retiring after eight years on the Dallas City Council, and four newcomers — Kathy Stewart, Brian Hasenbauer, Sirrano Keith Baldeo and Chris Carter —are seeking to succeed him. (Full report on them and school board candidates here).
