Have you registered to vote?

I presume that everyone reading this is a registered voter already, but if for some reason you’re not, or if for some reason you haven’t updated your registration after moving, tomorrow is the last day to rectify this situation if you want to vote this November.

Tuesday is the last day to register to vote or make changes in voter registration for the Nov. 6 elections.

State law requires that voters must be registered 30 days before the election in which they vote.

Thirty-four jurisdictions, including the Houston Independent School District, the city of Houston and Harris County, are conducting joint elections. The state of Texas has 16 bond issues on the statewide ballot.

Completed registration applications can be delivered to any Harris County Tax Office location by the end of business at 4:45 p.m., or must be postmarked by 11:59 p.m., Harris County Voter Registrar Paul Bettencourt said.

To make changes in voter registration, Bettencourt suggested residents “get online instead of in line,” to update that information at www.hcvoter.net. The tax office is linked with the Texas Secretary of State’s office, making it easy to update information, such as a new address.

Information regarding the status of registered voters can be checked at www.hcvoter.net. For more information, call 713-368-VOTE.

No excuses. Get registered ASAP. Thanks very much.
