Saturday was Election Day across North Texas, and while there were no big state races on the ballot, there were lots of local ones that will impact everything from your roads to your children's education.

Big bond votes in Collin and Tarrant counties passed.

In Frisco, voters approved $775 million to build 14 new schoolswith a 77 percent approval margin.

And in Arlington, $663 million will build a fine arts center, athletic complex and two new elementary schools.

Dallas Independent School District Trustee Miguel Solis was re-elected in District 8.

While DISD District 6 will see a runoff between Bertha Bailey Whatley and Joyce Foreman.

In Fort Worth, it was a six-candidate race to replace District 9 City Council member Joel Burns, and it will go to a runoff between Ann Zadeh and Ed Lasater.

And in Mineral Wells, voters overwhelmingly approved using $4 million in public funds to renovate the historic Baker Hotel. The 14-story building was the toast of Mineral Wells for decades, but since closing in the 70s it has fallen into disrepair.

The overall restoration is expected to cost 56 million, using a combination of federal, state, local, and private funds.
