To Vote May 29, Register By April 30
Published April 26, 2012 @ 5:25 p.m.
With the delay and changes in the primary election date, it could be easy to miss the deadline to register to vote. And you must be registered to vote by Monday, April 30 to take part in the federal, state and local primary election May 29. (Not to be confused with the May 12 local election for 3 at-large positions on the Post ISD School Board.)
You can pick up a voter registration application at the voter registrar’s office at the Garza County courthouse, fill it out, and mail it at least 30 days before the election day. If you are not sure whether you are registered to vote, visit www.votetexas.gov and follow the simple steps on the web site.
You are eligible to register to vote if:
- You are a United States citizen;
- You are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
- You are at least 18 years old on Election Day;
- You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole); and
- You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
If you remain in the county where you registered to vote but have changed your residence address or name, you will need to submit your updated information to your county voter registrar. Your new voter registration certificate will be mailed to you from your county voter registrar.
If you have changed your residence address to a new county, you will need to submit a new voter registration application no later than the 30th day before Election Day (April 30 for the May 29 election). For more information or if you have questions about your voter registration, contact the Garza County Voter Registrar’s office at 806-495-4448.
