The November 5th Regular and Special Election is fast approaching, and the deadline to register to vote or make any changes to name or address information is October 7th.
Walker County Election Officer, Diana McRae reminds voters that photo identification will now be required for voting in person.
Election officials are encouraging voters to update their voter registrations to reflect the names on their ID’s. Voters may use ID’s that do not exactly match the name on their ID’s if the names are substantially similar but will have to sign an affidavit stating they are the same person. Voters may look up their registration at votetexas.gov and if their name is not an exact match they can update their voter registration online at votetexas.gov or come by the Voter Registration Office in Room 114 at the County Annex Building.
