In addition to listing the polling locations and various ballot items, there should be information regarding who can vote and how to "read" your Voter Registration Card (VRC). As such, I would like to highlight the Voter Registration Codes on your VRC. Check first that your VCR is colored orange and valid through 12/31/2021. Then look Codes Table on your card.

If you have Codes: SCHOOL S18 and COLG J05, you are eligible to vote for TCISD and COM. The number following these codes note your specific District Representative. Finally, you can "see" your own Sample Ballot and other important election information using the County's 2021 Elections Website: https://www.galvestonvotes.org/election/may-2021-entity-elections/

You also can go to this same Website to check on elections results!
