The event will be held Sept. 26 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Richardson Farmers Market at Coit and Belt Line roads. Both Collin and Dallas county residents are welcome to attend, said Pamela Wren, the organization’s vice president of voter services.
Voters appear to be more energized this year than in past presidential elections, organization President Ellen Steger said. The league has been receiving more calls from citizens looking for information on how to register and vote by mail.
“Our phone is definitely more busy than it usually is, especially this far out from the election,” she said. “This year has been totally different.”
The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 5. Applications to vote by mail must be received by each county’s election office by Oct. 23.
According to the secretary of state, Texans are only eligible to vote by mail if they are age 65 or older, disabled, expected to be absent from the county during early voting and Election Day, or confined in jail. For more information on absentee voting in Texas, visit this link.
Early voting begins in Richardson on Oct. 13 and runs through Oct. 30. Election Day is Nov. 3.
