Don’t just intend to vote; Make a plan!

Make a plan to vote!

Early voting for the 2019 City Council Election begins on Monday, April 22 and runs through April 30. Election Day is Saturday, May 4. Kerrville United has always tried to encourage a higher turnout for local elections. Last year we made some progress, but overall voter turnout for citywide elections is still embarrassingly low!

Studies have shown that when you actually make a specific plan to vote, you are more likely to follow through and cast a ballot. Also, if you make plans with friends, you’re even more likely to follow through because those friends hold you accountable. So today we invite you to make a specific plan with your friends on when you’ll vote, who you’ll vote with, and where you’ll take a selfie after you finish!

How to Plan

First, take a look at the calendar below and determine when you might be able to vote. This year all early voting takes place only on weekdays, so if you work an 8-5 job, you might want to look at the first two days, when polls are open early and late. The majority of early voting, polls are only open 8-5.

Talk to a friend or a co-worker and encourage them to go and vote with you. If any of your family members or friends need transportation, volunteer to drive them. The more people you personally contact and make plans to vote with, the higher the turnout will be. Kerrville really needs higher turnout — especially among younger voters!

Set that voting date as you would with any important appointment, and honor it! Plan on voting early so that if something unexpected happens, like a flat tire, or a sick child, you’ll still have time to reschedule.

Vote during the early voting dates or election day and take a selfie with the hashtag #VoteForKerrville and we’ll feature you on our social media pages and in a live video webcast on Election Day! Upload the photos to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter on or before election day!

All voting takes place at the Cailloux Theater on Main Street in downtown Kerrville.
