Early voting underway for Nov. 7 ballot


LIVINGSTON -- As of noon on Friday, only 115 Polk County residents had cast early ballots on seven proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. Election day will be on Tuesday, Nov. 7. Early voting will continue next week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, Oct. 30-Nov. 3. Locations include the first floor of the Polk County Judicial Center in Livingston, where a total of 74 people voted last week; the Polk County Subcourthouse in Onalaska, where 30 early votes were cast last week; and the Sechrest Webster Community Center in Corrigan, where 11 early ballots were received last week. Because of the expected low voter turnout for the amendment election, the 20 voting boxes normally used by county have been consolidated into five locations. They will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day, Nov. 7. The voting places include: • Voting boxes 3, 4, 7, 16, 18, and 21 will vote at the Polk County Courthouse in Livingston. • The Onalaska Sub- Courthouse at 14111 U.S. Highway 190 West will host voters for Voting Boxes 5, 6, and 17. • The Escapee's Care Center at 159 Care Center Drive near Livingston will be the voting location for Boxes 1, 2, 15, 19 and 20. • Voting Boxes 8, 9, 10 and 11 will vote in Sechrest Webster Community Center at 100 West Front Street in Corrigan. • Soda Baptist Church at 8135 U.S. Highway 190 West in Livingston will host Voting Boxes 12, 13 and 14. Voters unsure of which box they should use should look on their voter registration card. The voting box number is listed as "Prec. No."
