The deadline to register to vote for the 2012 Presidential election is Tuesday, October 9th, and there are many ways to get registered to vote. Kennedy said people can either go to the post offices, libraries or the Lubbock County elections office to sing up to vote. People can also visit, download the voter registration form and mail it to their local registrar’s office. All forms must be postmarked on or before October 9th in order to be eligible to vote in the 2012 elections.

Kennedy also addressed a complaint filed against the elections office, saying that some smaller towns with mobile voting units, such as Idalou and Shallowater, will only have a few hours to early vote. Kennedy corrected the complaint, saying that those people who cannot make it to the mobile voting areas can still participate in the election.

The beauty of early voting is you can go anywhere. So, those folks that live in Idalou and actually work in Lubbock, they can go to Market Street on 98th and Quaker, they can go to Texas Tech at the Rec Center, there’s a lot of places these folks can go to.

For more information on registering to vote in Lubbock county, you can visit the elections office at 1308 Crickets Avenue, or call them at 775-1339.
