Redistricting delays voter cards

(Revised)

The continued fight over congressional redistricting in Texas has caused the delay of the state’s primary election. It also has delayed the distribution of new voter registration cards.

According to Olga Marrero, Wilson County’s voter registrar, the Secretary of State’s office has put mailing of the new cards on hold until voting boundaries are officially adopted. Marrero said this has led to the circulation of an email message indicating that new cards would not be mailed.

“That’s not true,” she said.

Voter registration cards, which are issued each year, list the voter’s commissioner precinct, voting box, and state and federal congressional districts. They might also list single-member districts for municipal and school elections. But until all districts are officially decided, Marrero said the cards cannot be printed.

Still undetermined are the boundary lines for U.S. House of Representatives districts. Wilson County is currently in the 28th District, which is represented by Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar of Laredo. An initial proposal would have split the county, with the eastern portion becoming part of the 15th District, which is represented by Democrat Rep. Rubén Hinojosa of Mercedes.

The tentative date for a statewide primary -- which usually occurs in March -- is May 29. But several communities, such as Falls City, La Vernia, St. Hedwig, Stockdale, and Poth, have municipal and school board elections set for May 12.

“If there’s an election, (voters) don’t have to re-register unless there was a change from last year,” Marrero said.

The 2011 cards, which are blue in color, can still be used for the local races, she said.

Voters who have moved should visit the Voter Registrar’s Office to complete an address confirmation form. The office, which is open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, is located in Wilson County Courthouse Annex III, 1103 Fourth St., Floresville. For more information, call 830-393-7380.

According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, as a result of ongoing redistricting litigation, the mailing of new voter registration certificates is delayed.
The expiration of your old voter registration certificate on Dec. 31, 2011, does not invalidate your voter registration.


Remember:

•If you do not have any changes to your voter registration (i.e., you haven’t moved or changed your name), no action is needed at this time.

•If you remain in your county of registration but have changed your residence address or name, you will need to submit your updated information to your county voter registrar and 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.

To check registration status, or for a change of address form, visit http://www.votetexas.gov/register_to_vote.html.

Once the court approves interim redistricting maps and counties have the opportunity to finalize precinct lines, the county will issue new voter registration certificates.
