SAN ANTONIO – It’s time to head to the polls and cast your ballot, as early voting begins on Monday.

Voters will be able to cast their ballots on city and school races, including two propositions.

Proposition B would take collective bargaining rights from police officers and change how the city would negotiate further contracts with the police union. If approved by voters, the police union would have less power when negotiating a contract with the city.

Critics say without collective bargaining police officers would see their benefits negatively affected, hindering the city’s ability to recruit and retain quality officers.

There are also more than 80 candidates on the May 1 ballot who are running for 11 seats. Voters will be able to choose the city’s next mayor along with 10 City Council seats.

Voters don’t need to bring a voter registration card, but they will, however, need a valid form of identification which does include a driver’s license.

Election Day is May 1.
