Contributed

Texas voters approved all 16 constitutional amendments Tuesday, Nov. 6, according to unofficial results from the Texas Secretary of State’s website.

Bandera County voters were more critical and gave their blessings to 13 of the 16 but turned thumbs down on Propositions 2 (more money for student loans), 4 (more bond money for state construction projects) 12 (more bond money for TxDot), and 16 (bond money for water & sewer projects).
They just barely approved Proposition 15, to create a Texas cancer research initiative, by a 636 to 604 margin.

One place where Bandera County voters followed state voters was in turnout. Only 1,262 Bandera County voters cast ballots of the 14,132 eligible, which represented 8.93 percent, according to the Bandera County Election office. Statewide approximately 8.5 percent of eligible Texans voted.
