The deadline to register to vote in the next election is TODAY. If you are not registered to vote by that time, you will not be eligible to vote in the March 6th Primaries.
Be advised that if you are new to town or if you’ve moved in the last few years you need to check your registration. You'll be able to vote on March 6th, but it may affect what you're able to vote for.
According to Howard County Elections Administrator Jodi Duck, there are approximately 3,500 people who need to update their information. She knows that because that's how many voter registration cards have been returned to the office.
If you haven't updated your information, it could prevent you from casting your vote where it's needed most. For example, if you lived in Precinct 1 and moved to Precinct 4 you might miss out on your chance to vote on Howard County Commissioner of Precinct 4 because your voter registration hasn't been updated.
If you need to register to vote or if you need to update your information, you can stop by the Howard County Elections office on the 1st floor of the County Court House and they can help.
For more information you can call their office at 432-264-2273.
