Lubbock County Elections office needs your input on voting locations

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - When the November election comes around, voters in Lubbock County will be using super precincts.

That means voters will not have to vote at their designated precincts. On Tuesday, June 22nd the Lubbock County Elections office would like to know which locations are convenient.

You can do that by attending one of two meetings scheduled for 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. Both will be held in the jury pool room at 1302 Crickets Avenue.

Both party chairs, as well as county representatives, will be in attendance to discuss proposed locations for Vote Centers.

Lubbock was one of the first cities in Texas to participate in the process during the 2006 elections. Cities across the state are now following Lubbock to implement their own super precincts, after Lubbock was commended by Austin legislators for the successful conduct of the super precinct program.

"We encourage citizens to attend these hearings to give input into the process of Vote Centers in November," said Dorothy Kennedy, Elections Administrator for Lubbock County. "Public input is the key to a successful Vote Center program."
