Early voting in the March 1 Presidential Primary elections starts Tuesday, Feb. 16, and runs through Feb. 26.

Although the presidential primary races top Democratic and Republican ballots, there are a number of other nominees to be decided for federal, state and county jobs. Plus, each party offers at least one non-binding proposition.

Ballots for both ballots also may offer surprises for voters in that some presidential candidates have dropped out of races and other candidates are not familiar. Candidates signed up for the presidential primary in late 2015 and their names are not removed after they have quit the contest.

Appearing on the GOP ballot are presidential hopefuls Lindsey Graham, Chris Christie, John R. Kasich, Carly Fiorini, Ted Cruz, Elizabeth Gray, Rick Santorum, Donald J. Trump, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee.

Seeking the Democratic nomination for president are Keith Judd, Calvis L. Hawes, Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, Martin J. O’Malley, Star Locke, Bernie Sanders, Willie L. Wilson and Hillary Clinton.

Depending on where they live in Murphy, voters have a choice in one of two races for U.S. Representative. Seeking the nomination for District 3 are four Republicans, incumbent Sam Johnson, David Cornette, Keith L. Thurgood and John Calvin Slavins, and two Democrats, Michael A. Filak and Adam P. Bell.

Running for District 32 in the U.S. House are five Republicans, incumbent Pete Sessions, Jeff Tokar, Cherie Myint Roughneen, Paul Brown and Russ Ramsland, and no Democrats.

Republican Primary voters are asked to vote for or against four non-binding propositions.

Proposition 1 asks if Texans should replace the property tax system with an alternative other than an income tax and require voter approval to increase the overall tax burden.

Proposition 2 is to require Texas counties and cities to comply with federal immigration laws, or be penalized by loss of state funds.

Proposition 3 asks if Texas should prohibit governmental entities from collecting dues for labor unions through deductions from public employee paychecks.

Proposition 4 declares that Texas and its citizens should strongly assert 10th Amendment Rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The three voting precincts in Dallas County are 2940; 2941 and 2942

The three voting precincts in Collin County are 144; 153 and 170.
