Time is running out to register to vote in the May 1 election. Voter registration applications must be postmarked by April 1 or brought in person to the county registrar’s office by end of business on that day in order to participate. In Texas you cannot register to vote online. The postage-paid application is available online (for printing out) at www.votetexas.gov as well as at the Richardson Library.

New registered voters will receive their voter cards by mail. Early voting for the May 1 City Council election is April 19-27.
