Fates of two ISD bonds and nine state constitutional amendments in voters’ hands

(Continued)

• Graford ISD Library: Oct. 25, 5-8 p.m.

Those 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. The last day to apply for a ballot by mail is Oct. 23. The completed application must be received (not postmarked) by Oct. 25. Photo ID is not required to vote by mail.

Election Day is Nov. 5, with 17 polls throughout the county open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

What’s new

A voter will be required to show one of the following forms of photo identification at the polling location before the voter can cast a vote:

• Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

• Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS.

• Texas personal identification card issued by DPS.

• Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS.

• United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph.

• United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph.

• United States passport.

The photo ID must be current or expired no more than 60 days. Other photo IDs, including student IDs and employment IDs, cannot be accepted at the polls.

Statewide Constitutional amendments

The nonpartisan League of Women Voters issued information on the nine amendments facing Texans.

To help Texas voters cast an informed ballot, the LWV-Texas Education Fund provides helpful, nonpartisan information on both the proposed constitutional amendments and the election process.

“To have a say on whether nine proposed amendments become part of the Texas Constitution, you need to vote,” says Linda Krefting, Chair of the League of Women Voters of Texas Education Fund. “The issues at stake on the Nov. 5 ballot are important to all Texans – property tax exemptions for military families, reverse mortgages for seniors, filling short-term city council vacancies, sanctions for judicial misconduct and funding for water.”
