CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Monday is the last day you can register to vote in order to take part in the Texas March Primary election.
To register, you need to submit your application, in person or via mail by the close of business today.
After a year when voting-law changes grabbed headlines, administrators across the state said they're on-track to be ready for the primary. This, despite new paperwork needing to be printed, and paper supply shortages.
At the Nueces County Courthouse, administrators say they are working to avoid any rejected ballot applications.
"If you do miss the deadline for some reason, it still doesn't prevent you to register to vote for the general election," said Nueces County Tax Assessor Kevin Kieschnick, who also acts as voter registrar. "If you missed the deadline and, let's say your application comes in late, you won't be eligible for the March primary but you will be eligible for the general election, which is November 1 this year."
Early voting runs from Feb. 14-25, with primaries election day on March 1.
Nueces County property taxes are also due Monday. Officials say to avoid the long wait times, you can pay those online at https://www.nuecesco.com/
They also ask that you do not mail in cash.
The Nueces County Courthouse is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you want to register in person.
