  Registration time has come and gone, but on the horizon (Oct. 20, 2014) lies early voting.  Maybe you are like Ken and Nola Hanson and like to study a ballot that you will actually be using before entering the voting place.  Here is how you do that in most counties:
  Medina County--www.medinacountytexas.org>>on left side of opening page place your mouse pointer on ADDITIONAL COUNTY OFFICES>>a side menu opens and you place your mouse pointer on ELECTIONS and cllick.  Find your precinct on the page and click it with your mouse pointer.  The ballot you will be using will appear.  That page has a lot of other information that will be helpful.

  Bexar County---www.bexar.org>>mouse pointer over GOVERNMENT>>then ELECTIONS>>2nd box in middle will send you to the proper place.

   Kendall County--www.co.kendall.tx.us>>place mouse pointer on DEPARTMENTS>>then ELECTIONS.  (They are supposed to have a place where you type in your zip or address and it will open the proper ballot.  As of last week, it was not ready.

   Those that live in Maverick County and Uvalde County--couldn't find anyway of getting a ballot online.  Atascosa did not have one at the time I checked.

    Don't forget to check out the one amendment on everyone's ballot.  It basically would allow a transfer of money for road work.

     ALERT:  The recent court ruling dealing with voter ID's may change some of the information located on some of the pages.  The court ruling will be appealed.  You may wish to pay closer attention to the appeal as that decision may alter what you need, or don't need, to cast your ballot.

May you have only smooth sailing on this Columbus Day of 2014.
