Time is running out to register to vote



November elections will be here before you know it. Oct. 6 is the deadline to register to vote in both Burnet and Llano counties. Statewide political races are already in full-swing for Election Day on Nov. 4.

To register to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years old by Election Day, a resident of the county in which you are voting, free of felony convictions, and not have a court judgment of “mentally incapacitation without the right to vote” by a court, according to the Texas Secretary of State.

Both Burnet and Llano counties allow people to register to vote by filling out an application and returning it to the county clerk’s office by Oct. 6, either in person or by mail. Any applications sent by mail have to be postmarked by 30 days before Election Day.

Additionally, you can register to vote through an online application on the Texas Secretary of State website at www.sos.state.tx.us.

For more information about voting in Burnet County, call the election administration office at 512-715-5288. For Llano County, call 325-247-5425.
