With the most important general election in our lifetime, you most vote. We are at a crossroads between a democracy and dictatorship. Ensure your voter registration card is current. The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 5. Any voter registration questions, call the voter registration office at 409-766-2280.
Absentee voter application deadline is Oct. 23, and submission deadline is Nov. 3. The County Clerk’s office told me that they will be sending out the absentee ballots by the end of September.
If you do not receive your ballot by the middle of October, call the County Clerk’s office at 409-770-5135.
Early voting starts Oct. 12 and ends Oct. 30. For more information on absentee ballots, voting schedules and polling locations, go to https://www.galvestonvotes.org/.
