Early voting ahead of Nov. 5 election continues this week

Early voting continues this week, ending Friday, for the Nov. 5 Uniform Election — the first statewide election where a photo ID will be required to vote in person.

During the early voting period, registered Parker County voters can cast their ballots at any county location.

Early voting hours are:  

• Sunday, Oct. 27 – 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Monday, Oct. 28-Friday, Nov. 1 – 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Mail voting

• The deadline for submitting an application for a mail-in ballot was Friday.

Early voting sites

The early voting sites are:

• Aledo Community Center, 104 Robinson Ct., Aledo, meeting room.

• Azle Masonic Lodge, 257 W. Main St., Azle, meeting room.

• Old Brock ISD Admin. Build, 100 Grindstone Road, Brock, meeting room.

Photo ID

Texas now requires voters to show photo ID at the polls. IDs that can be accepted include: one of four Texas Department of Public Safety-issued photo IDs (driver’s license, personal ID card, concealed handgun license or election identification certificate) or one of three United States gov­ernment issued photo IDs (passport, military ID card, U.S. citizenship or naturalization certificate).

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.

On the ballot

On the ballot are nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, placed in random order by Texas Secretary of State John Steen. Most Parker County residents will vote solely on the amendments, but others will also vote on additions to Emergency Service District No. 3 and ESD No. 7, as well as on bond elections in the Azle and Granbury school districts.
