Election deadline nears

Cameron County residents who want to vote in the March 1 primary elections but have not registered have one more week to do so.

The deadline to register is Feb. 1, which is Monday.

Remi Garza, election administrator for Cameron County’s Department of Elections and Voter Registration, encourages residents who have not yet registered to do so promptly and to also contact the elections office if they are unsure of their status.

“We can research any issues right away and resolve them so that they can cast their ballots without delays,” Garza said.

There are several ways people can access voter registration applications. They can find the applications on the county’s Department of Elections and Voter Registration website, the Texas Secretary of State website or actually visit the county’s Elections Department in person and fill out an application there.
