Make Your Voice Heard in 2020The citizens of Lubbock, the great state of Texas, and our fellow Americans across the country are gearing up for another election season. On Tuesday, March 3, Texas will conduct its primary races for offices ranging from President of the United States to State Senator and County Commissioner. The freedom and ability to participate in the electoral process is something to be celebrated and not taken for granted. Many across the world would love to be in the position that we Americans find ourselves in as we elect our various representatives.
The deadline to register to vote in the March primaries is coming up on February 3. It doesn’t take long at all to get registered; the form is only slightly larger than a postcard and can be completed within minutes. You can check your voter registration status online at votelubbock.org.
If you find that you still need to register to vote, you can complete the registration process at the Lubbock County Elections office on 1308 Crickets Avenue. If it’s more convenient, you can register at the Lubbock Chamber offices or, Director of Government Relations, Kyle Jacobson, can meet you at your business to get you registered. Remember, even if you’ve long been registered to vote in Lubbock County but have recently changed addresses, you must notify the elections office that you’ve moved in order to keep your records up to date.
In addition to fulfilling your patriotic duty of informed voting, there are other ways you can support the elections process here in Lubbock. The Lubbock County Elections Office is currently looking to fill positions for paid election workers to be stationed at polling sites during early voting and on Election Day. If you’re interested in serving the community and making some extra money while doing it, contact the Elections Office at (806) 775-1339.
