Midland County Pushes for Voter Registration

Monday is the last day to register to vote for the March 4th primary elections.
Midland County voting officials are pushing for voter registration after a very low turnout during last year's election.

According to the Midland League of Women Voters, only ten percent of voters in the county voted during the presidential election.

To change that, the organization organized a booth and volunteers at the Midland County Library.

The volunteers were helping people register to vote and encouraging registered voters to go out to the polls.

Monday is the last day to register to vote for the March 4th primary election.

"This year for the first time ever Midland County is doing a joint primary. That means you can come to any voting center. You can vote as a democrat, republican or independent, you don't have to go to the others, it's going to be joint. So when you go to the polls, be prepared to know who you're going to be voting for and be informed," said Leah Phyne, Public Relations Director at the League of Women Voters.

The organization is also hoping to get as many early voters as possible. Early voting begins February 18 and runs through February 23.

Registered voters must present a valid Texas driver's license, a Texas-issued voter ID or a passport in order to cast a ballot.

Polls in Midland County will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 4th.
