(Austin, TX) “Much is at stake for Texas in the 2012 elections,” says LWV-TX President Karen Nicholson. “Those elected by Texas voters will make decisions affecting all Texans and the future of our state--jobs and the economy, education, energy, and the environment to name a few.” Nonpartisan information on the election, races, and candidates is available on the LWV-TX website, www.lwvtexas.org,

To have a say on the issues important to Texas, vote in the May 29 Texas Primary Elections. You must be registered to vote by at least Monday, April 30, to be able to vote in the Primaries.

U.S. President, U.S. Senator, all Congressional districts, all state Senators and Representatives, all the State Board of Education, 2 Railroad Commissioners, statewide and district court races, and many county races will be on the ballot.

Early voting in-person for the Texas Primaries will take place from May 14 to May 25. During early voting, registered voters are able to cast their ballot at any early voting location in the county in which they are registered to vote. On Election Day, May 29, voters must vote in the precinct in which they are registered to vote. Voters should bring identification when they go to vote, but photo ID will not be required for this election.

Students and others unable to vote in person during early voting or on election day can apply for a ballot by mail by contacting the county elections office or by downloading the application from the Texas Secretary of State website, http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/forms/pol-sub/5-15f.pdf. The application must be received by the county elections office no later than May 22. A mail ballot will be sent and the completed ballot must be received by the elections office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, May 29.

Texas Primaries are partisan elections in which the Democratic and Republican parties select their nominees for the November General Election. Registered voters can choose to vote in either the Democratic Party or Republican Party primary but cannot vote in both primaries.

For races in which no candidate receives a majority of votes cast for the May 29 Primaries, there will be a Runoff Election on July 31. Registered voters who did not vote in the May 29 election will be able to vote in the Runoff for either political party; those who did vote in one party’s May 29 election must vote in the Runoff Election for the same party.

To register to vote, visit the voter registrar in your county, call the voter registrar to ask that an application be mailed to you, or download a voter registration application from the Secretary of State website: https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/vrapp/index.asp. Voter registration applications can also be found at many post offices, libraries, and Texas DPS offices.

Once a voter is registered, the registration remains in effect unless the voter has moved, Some voters may not have received their new voter registration certificate yet, but the voter’s registration remains valid if a new voter registration certificate has not been received. Voters who wish to check on their voter registration can do so by calling the voter registrar for their county or searching “Am I Registered” on the Secretary of State website: www.sos.state.tx.us.

The League of Women Voters of Texas has been educating and agitating for informed participation in government for more than 90 years and believes no form of participation is more important than voting.
