Election 2008 deadline approaching

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -There's an important date coming up for Election 2008. Nacogdoches County Assistant Election Administrator, Todd Stallings said,  " On Monday, October 6, that is the last day you can register to be eligible to vote in the November 4 general election." And voters are listening. Last week more than 200 filled-out voter registration cards were turned in to Nacogdoches County elections.   That's due largely to the work put in by volunteers with both political parties. They're conducting voter registration drives.

The voter registration deadline affects more than just first time voters. Election workers advise anyone who has moved to re register. Stalling's explained,  " Even if you moved in the same county, in the same city, or even on the same street, " you need to re-register.

And lately not all moves are by choice. Election Administrator Debra Gaston said,  " We've had some of the evacuees come to the office and we've assisted them by mail request. " Once October 6th comes and goes election workers will be pushing another important date. October 20th is the first day of early voting.
