The Party Primary Elections are three weeks from today on March 4, and early voting in person begins next Tuesday, Feb. 18, and will continue thru Feb. 28. Also, the deadline to request a ballot by mail is February 21, and remember a photo ID will be required for voting in person. If you don’t have a Drivers’ License or other form of photo ID, the Texas Dept. of Public Safety is issuing free Election Identification Certificates. In San Augustine County, Election Administrator Deborah Woods is also providing the free IDs, from 8-3, Mon-Friday through March 4.
Tomorrow morning on the KDET/KQBB local newscasts, I will begin a three-part series on the two county-wide party primary races in Shelby County, starting with the county treasurer’s race, and the county judge’s race Thursday and Friday.
