While there are no statewide propositions on the ballot this May, many cities, school districts and local entities will be holding elections. Individuals who have yet to register may obtain an application from several county offices, many post offices, libraries, or from the VOTEXAS Web site: www.VOTEXAS.org.
“This May, voters will head to the polls to elect local leaders and decide local issues all across our state,” Andrade said. “These are important decisions and I hope Texans will take the necessary steps to register to vote or update their registration if their address has changed so they can participate in the May 9 election.”
Texas residents are eligible to vote if they are a United States citizen, at least 18 years old on Election Day, not a convicted felon (unless sentence, probation, and/or parole have been completed), and not declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law. Voters may check their registration status at www.VOTEXAS.org or by calling 1-800-252-VOTE (8683).
