New voter ID cards in the mail for Liberty County residents

This map shows the lines for the new voting precincts for Liberty County. They were adopted in November 2021 after the completion of the 2020 U.S. Census.

Liberty County residents need to check their mailboxes this week for new voter registration cards sent out by the Liberty County Elections Administration Office. According to Elections Administrator Klint Bush, the blue postcards were mailed to more than 48,000 registered voters in Liberty County.

“Everyone should have them this week,” Bush said. “Be sure to pay attention to the card and take a look at your voting precinct as it may have changed. You know where you live and where you have voted previously, but see if your precinct number has changed because it may impact where you vote this year.”

The front right-side of the card lists a voter’s district for U.S. representative, state house of representatives, state senator, commissioner, justice of the peace and school district, and could include other voting entities such as drainage and utility districts. All of Liberty County is in U.S. Representative District 36, State House District 18 and State Senate District 3, but other districts will vary depending on where you live.

This sample of a voter registration card was provided by the Liberty County Elections Administration Office. This card, in particular, belongs to Voter Registrar Doc Sikes.

The front left-side of the card lists a voter’s name, address, voter ID number, gender, year of birth and voting precinct.

Bush said that many residents have asked that local newspapers and news websites post sample ballots, like they did in the past, but the voting process is more complicated with multiple ballots per party.

“There is no such thing as a sample ballot these days,” Bush said.

On the Elections Administration website at votelibertycounty.com, all ballots are posted in both English and Spanish.
