Where is Precint 2?
Jefferson County is divided into 4 Precincts and each Precinct is represented in County Commissioner's Court by a representative that lives in your district. The lines dividing precincts isn't necessarily the same lines that divide cities, school boards, or Texas State congressional lines. Knowing where you fit in these different district or precinct lines can be confusing but we've saved you the headache of searching for this information yourself!
Is there a map that shows the precinct in more detail? Yep! You can see it here, from the Jefferson County website.
I moved into the precinct recently, can I vote for you?Yes! However, you have to make sure all your ducks are in a row first.
1) Change your drivers license to reflect your new address. You can do that online and it will give you the option of updating your voter registration information at the same time!
If you previously lived somewhere else in Jefferson county, like in Beaumont, all of the districts and precincts are totally different. When you vote in Texas, poll workers check your Texas ID or Texas Driver's lisence to make sure the address matches with your voter registration card. So to vote in Precinct 2, you have to prove you live in Precinct 2.
2) Double check with the Texas Secretary of State website after your license comes in to make sure your voter registration information was updated. You can check online here or call the County Clerk's office (409-835-8760) and ask them to verify!
3) You have to have this done 30 days before the election! The primary is currently scheduled for November 8th 2022, which means you have to be registered to vote by October 11th 2022 or else you won't be able to participate.
Also please note - if you plan to vote by mail, there are additional steps you must take after verifying your registration status! See below for more info!
I don't remember if I'm registered to vote or where I am registered...what do I do!
