UT students camping overnight to bring awareness to early voting.
In all seriousness, Tuesday, February 16 marks the first day for Bexar County residents (and all other registered Texas voters) can cast their ballots during the early voting period. Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) passed back in 2011.
Texas voters are required to present one of seven types of photo identification to be eligible to vote. VoteTexas.org provides a complete list of acceptable identification forms, I.D. procedures upon voting and qualifications to gain exemption from the I.D. regulations.
Today as early voting begins, Texans across the state will head to the polls to cast their votes in this year's joint primary election.
There are 33 polling locations throughout Bexar County.
Registered voters may also vote early by mail if the voter is: away from his or her county on election day and during early voting, sick or disabled, age 65 or older, or incarcerated.
Voting times and centers vary by county, but most are operational 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. Check with your county elections office or the Secretary of State's website for times and locations close to you.
Okay! You got that?
