Local News, Notes and Events

Open in new windowElection day can't get here soon enough, for those of us who are tired of the rhetoric. After Tuesday, we can get off of politics and get down to policy. We just need everyone to get out and do their civic duty and vote. We recommend a vote for Barack Obama.

Hopefully all of our readers have already voted early, but in case you didn't, here is some information:

Voting Hours:

7 a.m. - 7 p.m.
If you are standing in line at 7 p.m., the polls will stay open to allow you to vote. If you are not in line by 7 p.m., you will not be allowed to vote, even if the polls are still open. Sometimes polling places have technical difficulties and can't open precisely at 7 a.m. Don't wait until the last minute, and let some unforeseen delay make you miss out on voting. Your employer should allow you time to go vote.

Lewisville Polling Locations:

On election day, you must vote ONLY in your designated precinct location. Your precinct number should be listed on your voter card, as shown in the example to the right.

Note that precinct numbers have changed for this year, so don't rely on an old voter card. If you do not have your new voter card, don't fret. You can look up your precinct and voter registration here, or refer to the precinct map to find where you live and figure out which precinct you are in.

One last note: voting locations change from year to year. Where you voted last year, or during this year's primaries will not necessarily (probably will not) be your polling place for this election. There's no use complaining to the poll workers about this, because they don't make the selections. Just check the location, and go vote.

If Something Goes Wrong...

You get to the polls, and someone tries to tell you that you can't vote, or you are in the wrong place, or they try to force you to provide identification that you don't have. These things happen, which is why we always encourage people to vote early, since there is much more time to correct problems. Nevertheless, your right to vote should be sacrosanct, so here's what you should do right now:

- Put Denton County Elections' phone number in your cell phone: (940) 349-3200.
- Put 1-866-687-8683 in your cell phone. This is the election protection hotline. They can possibly help out if you can't get the problem resolved by Denton County elections.

If you have a problem, try to resolve it with the poll worker. If you can't resolve it with the poll worker, ask for the Election Judge or Alternate Judge. Each polling location should have both, and they are from different political parties. If they can't resolve your situation, call Denton County Elections. If they can't resolve the problem, call the election protection hotline.

In any case, once you follow those steps, we'd like to hear from you if you had issues. Here's how to contact us.

After Polling Closes

The Lewisville Texan Journal will have election results in contested local races, beginning shortly after 7 p.m.

Join one of the election watch parties if you would like to hang out with like-minded people and cheer on your candidate.
