Deadlines approaching for May schools elections

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 3, 2017: 

 

NEW BRAUNFELS  — Voters wishing to cast ballots in May 6 schools elections should be aware of upcoming registration and mail-in ballot deadlines, according to the Comal County Elections Office. The deadline to register to vote in the election is this Thursday, April 6. Those eligible to vote by mail must request a ballot to do so by April 25.

The elections feature contested seats on the boards of trustees for Comal and New Braunfels Independent School districts, as well as a bond election for Comal ISD. Each district runs its own election and determines its polling places; however, the Comal County Elections Office provides materials and helps the districts hire poll workers. Election deadlines are set by state law. "We do all we can to help the districts have a smooth election process, and we always encourage voters to come to the polls and make their voices heard,” said Cynthia Jaqua, Comal County elections coordinator.

Those who were registered to vote in the November elections and have not changed their address remain registered to vote in May, Jaqua said. Voting by mail is only open to those who are at least 65 years old or are disabled, and the annual applications expire Dec. 31.

In-person early voting in the elections will be April 24-May 2, with polls open for Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 6.

Polling places and ballots are determined by the school districts and are available on their websites, comalisd.org and nbisd.org.
