CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — October 13th is marked as the first-day voters can cast their in-person ballots. Nueces County is encouraging voters to take advantage of early voting and a few new voting locations. Workers with the County expect a big voter turn out.
Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands says there will be 25 locations open for early voters and on election day there will be 84 places to cast your ballots. Sands says the goal is to make voting more convenient and accessible for the community.
“I think that's probably one of the most important things to do as Americans, is absolutely is voting, you have a right to vote use it,” said Sands.
New locations in Nueces County include the American Bank Center and New Life Church. Voters also have the option to participate in curbside voting as well. County workers advise voters to have a plan.
“Go in there prepared and know what you're doing, know who you're voting for it's going to help the lines move quicker and smoother you'll get out of there a lot faster,” said Sands.
County workers say Corpus Christi Independent School District campuses will be a hotspot to find voters too. CCISD schools that will be open during the early voting election season include Adkins and Grant Middle schools along with Veterans Memorial High School.
