Thursday Is Deadline For Texas Voter Registration

Chuck Smith

TX VOTER REGISTRATION - Thursday is the last day for Texans to register to vote in the May 7th elections. Grace Chimene is the President of the League of Women Voters of Texas. She says eligible Texans can either check their voter registration status or find applications at www.votetexas.gov. And, while you can fill out the form on that website, you must print it out to submit it.

“And, you will need to have it into the voter registrar for your county this Thursday, since it’s the last day to register to vote,” Chimene said.

All Texas voters will see two constitutional amendments about property taxes on the ballot. Some will also decide local elections, like city council and school board. Chimene, says her group has two videos explaining the proposed amendments.

“We just explain what the constitutional amendment is, and then do a simple for, the argument against, so people can make an informed decision," Chimene explained.

Both propositions would lower certain property taxes that fund schools. And for more information on the May 2022 elections – you can go to the website www.lwvtexas.org
