County Election Director Diana McRae reports a great showing on Friday, last day of Early Voting, with 537 voting Friday, making the total for Early Voting 2,776. This is an increase in voter turnout during the Early Voting time period from the last Gubernatorial Primary Election held in 2010 which yielded a total of 2,528 early voters.
Election Day is Tuesday, March 4th, and the polls are open from 7:00am to 7:00pm at the designated poll places. If you are unsure of your voting precinct or poll location, call 936-436-4959 before heading to the polls.
In Primary Elections in Texas, voters are not required to declare their political party at their polling place–but they are required to select one party’s ballot, either Democrat or Republican–and vote for only that party’s field of candidates.
Voters must have one of the approved photo ID’s in order to cast a ballot this election. As a reminder, an out of state driver’s license, student identification card, employee identification card–or the voter registration card, unless exemption applies–will not be accepted to vote in Texas. Please visit VoteTexas.gov for more information about voting in Texas and the new photo ID requirements.
Sample ballots are available online at www.co.walker.tx.us.
Monday, March 3rd, the County is closed in observance of Texas Independence Day.
