Turnout light in first week of early voting

A total of 773 people  have voted early so far for the November general election in Hockley County.

As of Friday, 597 people had voted early in the first five days of balloting. 

That figure included 60 people voting early Friday at the courthouse. Figures for the three other polling places in the county were not available Friday afternoon.

The County Clerk’s Office received 176 mail-in ballots, according to Gaynelle Box.

Early voting will resume Monday and continue through Oct. 31.

Voters are casting ballots on contested state and national races, as well as one constitutional amendment.

Voters only in Precinct 4, which includes Anton, will decide the one contested local race.
It is for the justice of the peace position.

The other three polling places are at city halls in Anton, Ropesville and Sundown.

Residents should have their voter cards with them when they go to the polls. They must also have some sort of photo identification such as a driver’s license.

The general election is slated Nov. 4.
