The final Presidential debate is in the history books, Grimes County; time to decide who you want to vote for.
And while you can still use your Texas Driver License, Personal or Military ID card, US Passport or a few others to identify yourself, the County’s Elections Administrator Rebecca Duff says there are new rules this year.
If you can’t get one of the standard photo IDs, she explains you can now still vote by signing a declaration explaining why, and bringing documents verifying you are who you say you are. Like an original certified birth certificate, a valid voter registration certificate, a copy or original of your current utility bill, bank statement, government check, or paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address. But, she continues, government documents including a photo must be original, not copies.
Along with the state and national elections to be decided, Duff says there’s one local race, pitting incumbent Democrat Precinct 3 County Commissioner Barbara Walker against her Republican challenger, Dorothy Holtcamp.
Early Voting runs Monday through Friday for two weeks, ending November 4th, at both the Grimes County Courthouse in Anderson and the Navasota Center. Hours both Mondays are from 7-7, and from 8 to 5 Thursdays through Friday. For more call 936-873-4424.
