Saturday, May 1 is Election Day for local municipal elections. Cities across Texas are having elections to decide school board, city council, bond, and other local elections. In Lubbock citizens in the city will vote on an ordinance that would establish the city as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn. The ordinance would ban abortions in Lubbock except for when the mother's life is at stake.

Those who live within Lubbock-Cooper ISD will also get to vote on a $420 million dollar bond election that is split into three propositions. The first would pay for a second high school, a third middle school, and a sixth elementary school. The other two propositions, if passed, would deal more directly with extracurricular activities and facilities. Lubbock-Cooper ISD says the bond money used would not increase property tax rates.

Lubbock Cooper also hopes that by passing the bond election, it will cut down on class sizes.

During early voting, 25,684 citizens in Lubbock cast ballots. On Saturday, polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Remember, as long as you are in line to vote by 7:00 p.m., you will be able to vote.

Also don't forget to bring a proper form of identification when you vote.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
