Beginning with the 2020 General Election, voters no longer have the option of checking a single box to cast a ballot for every candidate from their political party of choice.
Passed in 2017 by the 85th Legislature, House Bill 25 by Rep. Ron Simmons eliminated straight party voting as of Sept. 1, 2020.
District and County Clerk Jim Plummer reminds voters to be mindful of this change, stating that it is important for voters to stay informed.
Registered Texas voters can early vote weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Tuesday, Oct. 13, through Friday, Oct. 30, at the Garza County Courthouse at 300 W. Main St.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.
For those voting by mail, October 23 is the last day for the clerk to receive an application for a ballot by mail and by Federal Post Card Application. The application must be received by 5 p.m. and be mailed to:
Early Voting Clerk
P.O. Box 366
Post, TX 79356
Early voting mail ballots for Garza County voters will be sent out later this week, Plummer said.
Applications for ballot by mail and additional election information can be found at www.garzacounty.net/2020_november_election.html.
