Who are you voting for? Part 1

No one if you are not registered to vote.  In Texas, the deadline to register is October 11, 2016 for the November 8, 2016 elections. If you know you are not registered to vote you can go to this link – https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/vrapp/index.asp and get registered.  To confirm you are registered go to this link – https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do, and make sure all of your information is correct. Once you are registered make sure you have proper ID with you when you go to vote.  There are seven forms of ID which are approved.  They are:

  1. Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS);
  2. Texas personal identification card issued by DPS;
  3. Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS;
  4. Texas handgun license issued by DPS;
  5. United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph;
  6. United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph;
  7. United States passport.

So once you are registered to vote, and have your ID ready to go vote, how do you know where to go?  Go back to this link https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do, fill out the information and click enter and on the next page, click on the link under upcoming elections.  It will give you voting precincts where you can vote.  I would suggest that you avoid the last minute rush and take advantage of early voting from October 24th – November 4th

        So who are you going to vote for??  The next blog will address straight ticket voting.  A quick preview – don’t do it.

If a court is not listed then no recommendation is made for that party candidate.  That could be because I like the other party candidate better or I just don’t know them well enough to recommend them.   Also as a final disclaimer some of my recommendations for the general election may change depending upon the primary results and/or my learning more about the candidates who I don’t know as well.
