Early Voting is set to being on Tuesday and many East Texans are wondering where to go exercise their rights.

To visit the state website to fine your county's polling place you can visit VoteTexas.org.

KETK has also divided websites up by county to make it easier for you find your correct location:

To be eligible to register to vote in Texas, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
     
  • Be a resident of the county
     
  • Be 18-years-old
     
  • Not be a convicted felon (unless a person's sentence is completed, including any probation or parole)
     
  • Not declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law

In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) creating a new requirement for voters to show photo identification when voting in person. While pending review within the judicial system, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, which effectively ended all pending litigation. As a result, voters are now required to present an approved form of photo identification in order to vote in all Texas Elections.

The following forms of photo identification will be accepted at the poll for voting purposes. A voter will be required to show one of the forms
of photo identification at the polling location before the voter will be permitted to cast a vote.

Pete, Sheila states the truth regarding the voting machines... They were programmed in such a way for the last Presidential election. They are not usually tampered with during primary elections though.

Liberals live in a world they create where everyone is at peace and all are happy. Reality is just what their Television shows tell them and Sports is the best thing to watch instead of the network news on Fox or NBC.

Sheila, the folks on Mars miss their village idiot..please, go home. Do you love ANYTHING or ANYONE? Or, even more to the point, does anyone love you? Gosh..the government is your enemy, politicians are enemies, climate change is a hoax, Jews shouldn't be allowed, media is the devil incarnate, and on and on, so goes your paranoia..I've come to the realization that you may be an obstreperous "plant" on KETK, as there just really can't be anyone on the planet so hate-filled. Have a blessed day!!!

Pete, does your mother know you play on her computer all day while she's at work ?

Meanwhile...the electronic voting machine can be programmed to achieve predetermined results. While you watch who votes and how many times, the gov. steals our national elections with rigged machines in "Battleground" states.
