We just held the water election last Saturday and are still completing the paperwork associated with that election. Over the last few weeks we have also been conducting the Primary Runoff Election for the Democratic and Republican parties. Election Day is Tuesday, May 27, 2014. We will once again use VoteCenters (where any Victoria County registered voter may vote at any polling location) and thirty-six polling locations will be open on Election Day.

Early voting by mail ballots have been mailed to all those who voted in the primary and many of those have already been returned. You still have a chance to get a ballot mailed to you if you qualify. A mail ballot voter must meet one of the following criteria;

  1. Be 65 years of age or older by Election Day,
  2. Have a disability which prevents you from entering a polling location,
  3. Be confined in jail but not have a final felony conviction,
  4. Be absent from the county during early voting and on election day.

Voters who qualify may request a ballot be mailed to them. All applications must be received by the early voting clerk no later than 5 pm on Friday, May 16, 2014.

Early voting in person for the runoff will begin on Monday, May 19, 2014 and continue through Friday, May 23, 2014. This is a one week only early voting which is unique to primary runoff elections. Monday through Thursday the hours of operation will be 8 am to 5 pm. On Friday the hours will be from 7 am to 7 pm, but only on Friday.

Early voting in person will be held at the Pattie Dodson Public Health Center in Classroom A. The Health Center is located at 2805 N. Navarro.

Election Day is a Tuesday and will be the day after Memorial Day.
