League of Women Voters Hosts Voter Registration Drive

News

The League of Women Voters conducted a voter registration drive at three United Supermarkets in Amarillo.

The three locations included the Amigos store at 3300 I-40 East, the River Road store at 3400 River Road and the store at 4701 S. Washington. The times were from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

In order to vote in the May 4 city, school and college elections, people have to become registered by April 4. 

The people that need to get registered are citizens that are 18 years or older who are not registered yet or have moved from the address listed on their registration card.

Citizens who have changed their name also need to re-register or notify their county voter registrar in writing by the deadline.

The elections will include the Amarillo City Council, the Amarillo Independent School District board of trustees and the Amarillo College boards of regents as well as an $89 million bond issue for Amarillo College.

Other school districts and cities in the area who have contested races will also be conducting elections on May 4.

Those eligible to vote by mail need to call their county election administrator to request the application. Those people include voters 65 years old or older, people sick or disabled, those who will be out of the country on Election Day or early voting and those in jail but otherwise eligible to vote.

Early voting begins April 22 and runs through April 30.
