Weather Could Complicate Primary Election

(March 3, 2014) Texas Secretary of State Nandita Berry Monday advised county election officials to extend polling hours and combine voting locations in case of bad weather Tuesday.

In Bell and Coryell counties the elections administrators said polls would open at 7 a.m.

Some short delays could be experienced at Killeen ISD polling places.

In Coryell County, voters may go to the tax office web page and find the polling place closest to them without regard to voting precincts.

Travis County delayed opening polls until 11 a.m. Tuesday because of the weather.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Advisory for much of Central Texas and area to the south through Tuesday morning.

Freezing rain and sleet are possible overnight and Tuesday morning and conditions could be icy.

Berry sent a memo to county election official on how to deal with potential difficulties, but each county will make its own decisions.

County officials can decide to open the polls late, but they should extend voting past 7 p.m. if they do.

County election officers should also make sure the public knows if any polling stations are closed because of the weather conditions.
