Time Running Out to Register to Vote in Presidential Election

Posted:

If you want to vote for the next president, you only have until 8 p.m. to get registered. 

To handle the increase of voter traffic, the Office of Elections set up the tables outside their offices. Since opening at 7 a.m. Monday morning more 2,000 people registered to vote.

NewsChannel 11 caught up with some of those who waited until the last minute to register. "I moved and I just didn't check to see if I was still registered. I was just making sure, and I was not. I was in suspense or something so I had to come correct that," Luis Valdez said. 

"I just feel that it's important to voice your opinion and let people know," Ashley Vinson added.

If you have not yet registered to vote for this presidential election, you still have time. You can download a registration form online at the Texas Secretary of State's website or you can pick one up at the post office. NewsChannel 11 has learned the Singer Post Office at 2801 South Loop 289 is open until 7 p.m. Monday. However, if you're going to mail the registration, it must be post-marked Monday.

If you would like to register in person, the Office of Elections will be open until 8 p.m. Monday night.
