Precinct 1 election controversy in Hidalgo County

This election year there are three write-in TMs on the ballot. "We have a write-in for governor, state board of education, and county commissioner precinct one," said Hidalgo County Election Administrator Yvonne Ramon. She said they had to change things up a bit"because the machines are all electronic.

"In the voting booth we will have a list of the position, candidates name, and instructions on how to select a write-in candidate," said Ramon.

She said there have been write-in TMs in the past"but believes people are more aware of it now because there is a local race involved. Some important dates for you to remember:

Last day to register to vote is October 4th.

Early voting starts on October 18th and continue through October 29th.

The deadline to apply for your mail-in ballot is October 26th.
