Civic responsibility is a priority for Texas Wesleyan, and we want our faculty and staff to be part of the election process.
Early voting in the Nov. 4 general election started Monday and runs through Oct. 31, and the Office of Sponsored Programs & External Relations is offering a little extra incentive to get out there and cast your vote.
Just bring in proof that you've voted - either during the early voting period or on Election Day - and you'll be entered in a drawing to win a half day off of work. The drawing will be held after the Nov. 4 election and the winner will be announced at the President's Open Forum on Thursday, Nov. 6.
What counts as "proof?" You can submit your “I Voted” sticker, voting booth code or a stamped voter registration card showing you cast your ballot . All you have to do is bring it by the Office of Sponsored Programs & External Relations to be entered to win.
Early voting will be held:
The main early voting site in Tarrant County is located at the Tarrant County Elections Center, 2700 Premier Street, but additional early voting sites in Tarrant County are available.
On Election Day, voters must cast ballots in the precinct in which they are registered. Photo IDs are now required for voting in person.
All major statewide races are on a single ballot along with a single constitutional amendment, which will allow excess money from the state’s Rainy Day fund to be used to pay for highway construction.
Additionally, local communities may include propositions, such as bond issues for items such as new construction of a multipurpose arena (Fort Worth) or schools (Aledo ISD).
