Q&A ABOUT 2020 VOTING
Q. WHAT HAS CHANGED ABOUT VOTING BY MAIL?
A. It has not changed. If your 65 or over, you still qualify. Larry sent you an official application for ballot-by-mail earlier. If you need help, contact Larry at firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage you the fill out the application, stick on a first-class stamp, and mail it in right away. You will receive your ballot by mail. The deadline is soon, so please return the request for your application to vote by mail today!
Q. HAS STRAIGHT TICKET VOTING CHANGED?
A. Under a new law, this year, Texans will NOT use a single "button" or checkmark to cast votes for all candidates of one party. Individual candidates will be listed along with their partisan affiliation. Also, you must carefully check the bottom of your ballot where you might find local, non-partisan elections that have been delayed by COVID-19. It is more important than ever to vote all the way to the bottom of your ballot.
Q. HAS EARLY VOTING IN PERSON CHANGED?
A. YES! Two major changes. Voting will begin a week early on October 13. Also, there will be social distancing at the polls, and most voters will wear masks. The earlier you vote, the more likely you will avoid lines. Larry Taylor will send you your nearest early vote locations.
Q. HAS VOTING ON ELECTION DAY CHANGED?
A. Voting on election day will be the same as it always has been, though social distancing rules will be in place, and this may slow down voting creating longer lines. Vote early!
