I Tried to Vote 

I think my ex-boyfriend stole my voter registration card, but I know it’s current.
You can still vote at your precinct polling place using one of several acceptable forms of ID, including a driver’s license or a U.S. passport. See sos.state.tx.us/ for more info.

I’m not sure if I’m registered, or maybe I moved since the last time I voted. And how do I find the right polling place, anyway?
You may still be eligible to vote in your old precinct if you’ve moved recently. Call the office of Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen at (210) 335-8683 for answers to these questions. Use the handy search tool at apps.bexar.org/webapps/html/elstrinq01.asp to find your March 4 voting location. Bonus: Sample ballot included.

Can I vote early even if I’m going to be in town on March 4?
Yes, you can vote in person February 19-29 at any early-voting location. Find a list of polling places and hours at co.bexar.tx.us/elections/EV_CALENDAR_-_JOINT_PRIMARY_2008.pdf

I forgot to register!
It’s too late for this shebang (the last day to register was February 4). Visit co.bexar.tx.us/elections/Registration/Register/register.html or call (210) 335-VOTE today so you don’t shirk your civic duty next time around.

What if I vote in the Democratic primary but want to swing for McCain in November?
No worries, waffler. According to the Texas Secretary of State, voting in the Democratic primary means only that for the remainder of ’08 “you can’t vote in another party’s primary or or participate in another party’s convention or sign an independent candidate’s petition for place on the ballot if the independent candidate’s position appears on the primary ballot,” but come the November general election, you’re a free agent.
