Mail ballot voting deadline approaching

Less than one percent of voters have submitted ballots to date during early voting, said county voting officials.
Burnet County Elections Administrator Barbara Agnew said that only 233 county residents voted in almost three days of early voting, less than one percent of 26,198 registered voters.
Agnew said that mail ballot voting is another option.
"Mail ballot voting does not require a photo ID but mail ballot requests end this Friday at 5 p.m.,” she said, "so voters over 65 without an ID are encouraged to request a mail ballot before the deadline.”
Another option for voters without a photo ID is to apply for an Election Identification Certificate (EIC) at the Department of Public Safety.
"Voters may bring their temporary EIC to the polling location – they do not have to wait for the card to arrive in the mail,” Agnew said.
Mail ballot voting request forms can be found on the Burnet County webpage and may be returned in person or by fax or mail to the office of the Elections Administrator in the Burnet County Courthouse.
Early voting will run through Friday, Nov. 1. Voting locations include the Burnet County Courthouse and Marble Falls Courthouse South Annex. Both locations are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday.
