REMINDER: Voter registration closes Tuesday
Date Posted: 10/05/2016 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
Are you tired of hearing about the November election? I bet you cannot go five minutes without someone around you mentioning the presidential candidates or sharing their views on what (or who) they believe is best for our country. Campaign season will be over fairly soon, but in the meantime, remember that the most important opinion to be shared about the general election is your own... when you express it by voting. Early voting is right around the corner - starting Monday, Oct. 24 and running through Friday, Nov. 4. But you cannot vote in this important election unless you are registered before the Oct. 11 deadline. Visit VoteTexas.gov to learn how to register yourself or help a friend get registered by Tuesday. Everybody has an opinion, but it's the opinion you voice by voting that truly counts. Don't miss your chance to be heard!
