Final, but unofficial results are posted below.
In the City of Lewisville, all three propositions passed by 22 point margins, and the City will now implement Fire Prevention and Crime Control districts, adding a total of 0.25% to the current sales tax rate, raising it to 8.25%. WhosPlayin endorsed the creation of the new districts.
In Flower Mound, voters approved extensions of their current dedicated sales taxes by wide margins of 25 points or better.
In the Texas Constitutional Election, the following amendments passed:
Prop. 1: Property tax exemption for surviving spouse of a disabled veteran. (WhosPlayin was opposed)

7:54 p.m.: WhosPlayin predicts that all Lewisville and Flower Mound sales tax propositions will pass.
10:29 p.m.: Some election day results have trickled in. Lewisville sits at 14 of 20 precincts reporting with everything passing by wide margins. We are told that Denton County is having some computer issues. Flower Mound election results have not been posted yet.
10:54 p.m.: There is still no movement on the remaining precincts in Lewisville or Flower Mound. The majority of state precincts are in, and I don't think we'll see any changes in results. I'm going to probably call it a night for tonight, but may check in once more right before I go to bed.
11:34 p.m.: Lewisville results updated via back-channel info. Denton County still not reporting online, but results below reflect totals we were given. More in the morning...
