Voter registration deadline nears

GREENVILLE — Hunt County residents who want to have a say in who will be the next president of the United States, or who will be their next senator or congressional representative have until Tuesday to make sure they are registered to vote.

The November 6 general election will also feature contests for County Commissioner Precinct 1 and Constable Precinct 1. Voters served by two area school districts will be choosing new board members, while citizens of one Hunt County city will be picking members of their city council on the same day as the general election.

Tuesday is the final day to register to vote in the election.

The race to see who will be the President of the United States will be at the top of the ballot. Incumbent President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party candidate, is facing Republican Mitt Romney, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The Texas Senate contest features Republican Ted Cruz facing Democrat Paul Sadler, Libertarian John Jay Myers and Green Party candidate David B. Collins.

Hunt County voters will also get to help decide who will be the next U.S. Representative from House District 4.

The contest is between incumbent US. Representative Ralph Hall (R-Rockwall), Democrat VaLinda Hathcox of Sulphur Springs and Libertarian Party candidate Thomas Griffing of Dallas.

The race for Hunt County Commissioner Precinct 1 is between Republican Eric Evans and Democrat Jerry Minter.

And Republican incumbent Constable for Precinct 1 Terry Jones will be facing Democrat Glenn Stone in November.

Residents served by the Boles and Cumby Independent School Districts will be voting for their boards of trustees, and voters in West Tawakoni will be casting ballots for their city council.

Robert Cruthird, Linda Pitts, Laura Sweeney, Gary Pitts and Jason Monroe are vying for four, four-year terms on the Board ISD board. William Bacon is unopposed in seeking a two-year unexpired term on the board.

Four people are seeking two places on the Cumby Independent School District board of trustees. Angie Allen, Renee Seely, Tammy Giles and David Tremor are vying for the three-year terms.

Jack Schultz and Calvin Travers are competing for the post of Mayor of West Tawakoni, while Pete Yoho and Laura Beckett are in the race for Place 2 on the West Tawakoni City Council. Carol Solomon is unopposed in seeking the Place 4 spot.

The entities chose to move their elections this year from May to November, so as not to conflict with the rescheduled political party primary elections.

Early voting is scheduled between October 22 and November 2.

Tuesday at 5 p.m. is the deadline to register to vote, or to make a change of address to be effective for election day, through the Hunt County Voter Administration Office, 2217 Washington Street in downtown Greenville.

 Those needing additional information can call the office at 903-454-5467 or go online at www.huntcounty.net/VoterReg/voter.htm.
