2014 General Elections

2014 General Elections

Election Day falls on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 this year and if you didn’t take advantage of early voting please vote on Tuesday! There has been a lot of encouragement to early vote, of the 959,439 registered voters in Bexar County, only 15% of them (168,774 in total) early voted.

Bexar County includes 712 voting precincts in Bexar County, 53 political subdivisions, 20 Independent School Districts, 29 Cities, and 4 Military Installations.

Who: Registered Voters (confirm here)

Where: Find your voting location by address and GO VOTE from 7am to 7pm!

What: Sample ballot here.

Why: Things will never change if you don’t participate.

* If a voter does not have proper identification, the voter will still be permitted to vote provisionally. The voter will have (six) 6 days to present proper identification to the county voter registrar, or the voter’s ballot will be rejected.

What to Expect When You Go to Vote:

  • Voter arrives at a polling location
  • Voter presents photo ID:
    • Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
    • Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
    • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
    • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
    • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
    • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
    • United States passport
  • Voting official looks you up and .

Once you get through the line and they find you in the system you’ll be taken to a little partitioned voting booth with black curtains on either side. It might look like this:

*This is an example, not real voting topic. 🙂

 

NOTE: There will be a blinking RED (GREEN??) light when you complete everything. You have not submitted your votes until you have pressed VOTE.

If the name does not match exactly but is “substantially similar” to the name on the OLRV, the voter will be permitted to vote as long as the voter signs an affidavit stating that the voter is the same person on the list of registered voters.
