Early voting begins for November election

Early voting starts today for the November election and one of the big issues on the ballot is a billion dollar Austin Independent School District bond.

The exact bond total is $1.05 billion. AISD says the money will be used to make some long overdue repairs, tech upgrades and pay for construction of new facilities. 

Officials also say the bond won't raise property tax rates since they won't borrow all the funds at once.

The money would be distributed over five years and AISD would pay off existing debt as it takes on new debt at the lowest possible interest rates.

Many critics are saying AISD is misleading voters.

Early voting runs through November 3rd.
