Big Texas Tech issue on the November 3rd 2009 ballot

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas Tech needs your vote.  No, the university is not running for public office.  But Proposition Four on the November 3rd ballot sets aside $500 million for emerging Tier One universities in Texas.  Seven universities would compete for that money, including Texas Tech.  The official name for the fund is NRUF or National Research University Fund.

Along those same lines... Monday (October 5th) is your last chance to register to vote in Lubbock County for the November election.  Early voting starts on October 19th. 

Lubbock voters will have the chance to cast their ballot for several state constitutional amendments and the city of Lubbock bond election. 

You can get a voter registration application at any Post Office inside the city of Lubbock, or the office of elections.
