New polling stations are being set up in Nueces County for early voting, which begins October 13, a week earlier than usual. Texas Governor Greg Abbott added an extra week to the normally two-week primary to meet COVID-19 regulations and avoid long waits in the upcoming November 3rd general election.
Since this is a presidential election, the turnout is expected to be much higher than usual for both the early and election day elections.
Polling stations are being relocated from smaller, high-traffic areas to larger venues like the American Bank Center for social distancing, said Kara Sands, Nueces County Administrator.
The Flour Bluff High School maintenance building will replace the Ethel Eyerly Senior Center, a much smaller polling station with heavy traffic.
Nueces County Commissioners at a recent meeting voted to increase the pay for election workers. Pay increased to $ 14 an hour for officers and presiding judges and to $ 12 an hour for additional employees. Each polling station should have one manager and five employees.
The times will differ on different days during the early voting period. Please visit the Nueces County EarlyVoting page for a while.
