Just a reminder: Early voting continues in the Texas Democratic and Republican primary elections through next week.

In fact, the county clerk’s office will be open this Saturday (today) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (including the noon hour) for early voters in the commissioners courtroom at the courthouse.

That process continues through Friday, May 25, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. in Room 109 there.

Voters should remember to bring their current registration card or some form of identification.

According to County Clerk Mirella Escamilla Davis, 600 votes have been cast so far.

Unofficially, there have been 179 personal appearance ballots cast by Democrats and 204 by Republicans, she said.

In addition, Democrats have requested 340 applications for early ballots by mail, and 206 have been received by her office.

For Republicans, 24 applications for mail ballots have been received, and 11 have been returned, she said.

Those voting by mail are encouraged to mail in their applications as soon as possible and return their marked ballots promptly and not later than election day, May 29, she added.

Also, remember that voters may only cast ballots in either the GOP or Democratic primary. Voters are warned that if they signed a petition for a candidate of either party, they are prohibited from crossing over to vote on the opposing party primary.

For additional information concerning early voting, contact Mirella Escamilla Davis, county clerk, at 362-3245.
