Election Day is several weeks away, but there are a few things you can do now to make sure your voice is heard.
First, make sure you are registered to vote. The last day to register is Thursday, August 10. You can verify your registration by accessing the www.VoteTexas.gov website and clicking on Register to Vote in the left column. By entering your driver’s license and date of birth, you can confirm your voting status.
If you are not an ‘active’ voter, you simply have to fill out the Voter Registration Form and mail it to the County Elections Administrator for the county in which you live. Forms are available in the City Secretary’s Office located on the 2nd floor of Town Hall. Online submission is also available at the same www.VoteTexas.gov website by clicking on Where to Get an Application in the left column.
Second, if you know you are going to be out of town during both the early voting period and on election day, or if you are 65 years of age or older, you are eligible to request an Absentee Ballot from the County Elections Administrator for the county in which you live.
