Monday is last day to register to vote

January 31, 2014

The March 4 primary election will be here before we know it, but several other deadlines are fast approaching.
At this time, voters can now start requesting a ballot by mail. However, the last day to register to vote is on Monday, Feb. 3.
The first day of early voting will be Tuesday, Feb. 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, in the County Clerk's office, which is located in the Nolan County Courthouse (100 East Third), Suite 108. The last day of early voting will be Friday, Feb. 28.
Friday, Feb. 21, is the last day for the County Clerk to receive an application to vote by mail.
On Election Day on Tuesday, March 4, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The County Clerk's office wants to remind voters about the new voter ID law, which requires one of the following forms of identification before a person is allowed to vote. The ID is necessary even if a voter has their voter registration card on hand.
The types of ID that will be accepted are:
• Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
• Texas Election Identification Certificate issued free of charge by DPS (a new ID, which is not your voter registration card)
• Texas personal ID card issued by DPS
• Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
• US Military ID card containing person’s photograph
• US citizenship certificate containing person’s photograph, or
• US Passport
