Election Day is a little more than a month away.
And Tuesday, Oct. 9., is the last day to register to vote in county, state and federal races.
With the presidential election on the ballot, Somervell County officials are anticipating a large turnout.
In addition to a presidential race between President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney, local voters have a lot to consider.
Also on the ballot are the races for Somervell County Commissioner Pct. 3 and Constable Pct. 2, as well as state and federal officers including State Representative District 59, State Senator District 22, U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative District 25. See what's on the ballot on the related attachment.
Individuals not currently registered to vote have until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to do so. You may register in person at the elections office inside the County Annex or online at votexas.org.
County officials are also informing voters that there is a new location for early voting. Future county elections will still be held within the County Annex, but ballots will no longer be cast in the vault area of the county clerk's office, according to elections clerk Cathy Thomas.
The new early voting location will be in the County Annex conference room. The closest parking areas and entrances to the conference room are at 106 Elm Street, the old entrance to the post office, and 102 Vine Street, across from Hollywood & Vine.
Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 22, and continues through Friday, Nov. 2.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Stay tuned for more election coverage as early voting approaches.
