“Voting is your civic responsibility,” said Karen Opiela, Karnes County election administrator. “Choosing to vote is your opportunity to have a say in not only how Karnes County is run, but also the State of Texas and the nation.”
Texas Secretary of State Nandita Berry said that the first step to voting is registering.
“I encourage all eligible Texans to register to vote or update their voter registration today,” Berry said.
Voters who are not already registered, must register by Monday, Oct. 6 to be eligible to vote in the upcoming November 4 general election.
Those who have recently moved to Karnes County and are registered to vote in previous counties of residence, must file an address change by the Oct. 6 date, as well.
Citizens can register to vote by downloading a mail-in application at votetexas.gov or apply in person at the Karnes County Elections Administrations Office at the Karnes County Offices on the Square at 210 W. Calvert, Ste. 140 in Karnes City.
“I encourage all eligible Karnes County citizens to register to vote or update their voter registration today,” Opiela said.
