Today, Friday, Nov. 2, is the last day of Early Voting in Breckenridge. Election Day will be Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Early Voting takes place in the Stephens County Courthouse at 200 W. Walker St. in Breckenridge and will continue through 5 p.m. today. On Election Day, voting will take place in the various precincts.

Although the number of voters was high last week, this week’s numbers have dropped off somewhat. At about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, 1,687 people had voted in-person in Stephens County during the Early Voting period. This week’s totals are Monday, 125; Tuesday, 110; Wednesday, 73; and Thursday (at 2:30 p.m.), 78. Last week, the daily in-person vote totals for the first week of Early Voting were Oct. 22, 300; Oct. 23, 325; Oct. 24, 195; Oct. 25, 239; and Oct. 26, 242.

In order to vote in person, citizens who are registered to vote must show an acceptable photo ID. According to the Texas Secretary of State’s VoteTexas website, here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:

  • Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
  • Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
  • Texas Handgun License issued by DPS
  • United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph
  • United States Passport (book or card)

With the exception of the U.S. Citizenship Certificate, which does not expire, for voters aged 18-69, the acceptable form of photo identification may be expired no more than four years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place. For voters aged 70 or older, the acceptable form of photo identification may be expired for any length of time if the identification is otherwise valid.

If you are registered to vote but do not have one of those forms of ID, talk to the election official at the polling place to figure out how you may cast your ballot.

The following candidates are on the ballot in Stephens County. Stephens County is divided into two different U.S. Representative districts, so each ballot will have only the appropriate district’s candidates on it. Additionally, voters who live in the City of Breckenridge will have an opportunity to vote on whether or not to allow the sale of wine and beer with a 17 percent alcohol content.
