Ike Evacuees, You Can Still Vote Even if You're Away

The State of Texas is making a concerted effort to help voters displaced by Hurricane Ike.

In her trip across the state -- one that included stops Wednesday in Bryan and Brenham -- Secretary of State Hope Andrade spread the word that voters who are able to return home before election day are being asked to contact their county election office, in case polling locations have changed.

The deadline to apply for a ballot to vote by mail is October 28. Evacuees are asked to provide the state a mailing address that is outside their home county, and on the form, indicate they were away during early voting and on Election Day.

Information provided by the Secretary of State's office can be found at the link below.
