Early Voting for Municipal and School Board Elections Starts April 24

Potter and Randall Counties

AMARILLO, TX - Early voting for the upcoming city elections starts Monday, April 24th. Early voting will be Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm in both Potter and Randall County. An additional two days of early voting will be available on Monday, May 1st and Tuesday, May 2nd from 7 am to 7 pm. 

Voters need to bring a photo ID.

"Senate Bill 14, which is the photo id law, is still in effect," Shannon Lackey said. "So you will need to bring your photo ID."

"So that would be your drivers license, your military ID, passport, handgun license," Melynn Huntley said. "Basically there is seven different forms of these."

Lackey, the Randall County Elections Administrator, said there is an affidavit a person can sign if they can not obtain an approved form of ID. 

"You can't just leave your photo ID in the car," Lackey said. "It means you simply do not have access to getting one. So that applies a lot to college students. So we have a lot of out of state kids that come here to go to school. They don't have a Texas ID, they would still be able to vote if they were registered in Texas. "

Citizens can vote if they have not moved since last registering or if they registered by April 6th. 

"Registration deadline for any election is whether it is a county or city school election is always 30 days before election day," Lackey said.

There are three early voting locations in Randall County and five in Potter County

"Some people get confused because they think I am going to vote in the city of Amarillo's election," Huntley said. "So they think they should be able to vote anywhere in the city. You still have to be in the county in which you reside and our registered.  So yes you can vote anywhere but you must be in your right county. "
