WELLINGTON — The final day to register to vote in the Nov. 3 general election is Monday, Oct. 5.
Voters must be a citizen of the U.S., a resident of the county and 18 years old on Election Day.
Voter registration forms will continue to be accepted on the first floor of the Collingsworth Courthouse through Monday, Oct. 5.
Those declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law cannot register to vote, and those convicted of a felony, and have not completed the punishment phase of conviction, are not allowed to register to vote or cast a ballot.
Early voting spans from Tuesday, Oct. 13 through Friday, Oct. 30. Anyone over 65, sick or disabled or out of the county during early voting and on Election Day can vote by mail.
The race for Collingsworth County Commissioner Precinct 1 is between Shelly Brim (D) and Farris Nation (R). Nation won the primary in May over incumbent Elmer Keller (R).
For two places on the Wellington ISD Board of Trustees, incumbent Gene Pena filed to run again along with challengers Mark Lemons and Wade Williams. Long-term board member Lynn Bartlett did not file for a place on the ballot.
Poling places on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Watch for ballots for each community in a future issue of The Red River Sun.
