Early voting to adopt or reject the proposed constitutional amendments in the November election begins Oct. 21, according to a news release from the Victoria County Elections Administration Office.

Ten state constitutional amendments, approved by the Legislature during this year’s session, will appear on the statewide ballot Nov. 5. Early in-person voting will be at the Dr. Pattie Dodson Public Health Center in classroom A.

All registered voters in Victoria County are eligible to vote in this election, and it does not matter which voting precinct you live in, according to the news released.

Voters will be required to provide an acceptable form of photo identification to vote in this election. Accepted forms include a Texas driver’s license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety, a Texas personal identification card or a United States passport.

If a voter does not have and cannot reasonably obtain one of the accepted forms of identification, there are provisions in place to assist the voter, according to the release.

Early voting by mail is ongoing. Applications for those who qualify will be accepted by mail until 5 p.m. Oct. 25. Applications may be delivered by hand until early voting begins Oct. 21.

To be eligible for a ballot by mail, a person must be at least 65 years old by Election Day, have an illness or disability that prevents them from entering a polling location, be confined in jail without having been finally convicted of a felony or be absent from the county during early voting in person or on Election Day.
