Primary voting update
With the postponement of the Texas Primary Election from March to May, it’s been a confusing time for many voters.
Candidates for a multitude of offices are on the ballot, from those running for county constable and county commissioner, to state and federal offices, including president of the United States.
The Primary Election is set for Tuesday, May 29, with early voting running May 14-25. Early voting will take place at Wilson County Courthouse Annex III, 1103 Fourth St. in Floresville, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A second polling location, in La Vernia City Hall on Chihuahua Street, will be open May 21-25, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Votes on May 29 may be cast from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at various polling locations. These will be published in coming issues of the Wilson County News.
Sample ballots may be viewed in Courthouse Annex III and at the Wilson County News office, 1012 C St. in Floresville.
Wilson County Voter Registrar Olga Marrero advises that voter registration cards have been mailed.
“All they [voters] have to do is sign them and keep them, unless there is some correction; then sign the back and send it back with the corrections,” Marrero said.
Voter registration cards are valid for 2012 and 2013.
For more information on the Primary Election, contact Eva S. Martinez, early voting clerk, at 830-393-7309, or visit http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections.
