State Representative Tan Parker issued a reminder Friday to Denton County residents that Tuesday, Oct. 9, is the last day for a person to register to vote in the upcoming November general election.
During the 2008 presidential election, Denton County far outpaced the statewide average for voter turnout, and Parker said that he wants to ensure the county’s voice is heard loud and clear in this election as well.
“Having the opportunity to choose our elected leaders is the most cherished right that we enjoy,” Parker stated. “This November election will be tremendously important for the future of our state and our nation, and I encourage every person eligible to vote in Texas to become registered and to participate in this process.”
Texans can verify their voter registration or find information on how to register to vote by visiting the state’s website, www.votetexas.gov. Denton County residents can register to vote in person by visiting the county’s Election Administration office, located at 401 West Hickory, Suite 125 / Denton, TX 76201. Voter registration applications are also typically available at libraries, government offices, high schools and by visiting www.votetexas.gov.
Initially elected in November 2006, Representative Parker represents both rural and urban parts of Denton County which encompasses the cities of Flower Mound, Highland Village, Pilot Point, Argyle, Aubrey, Dish, Krugerville, Sanger, Cross Roads, Krum, Ponder, Justin, Lantana, Northlake, Copper Canyon, Double Oak, Bartonville, Trophy Club, Roanoke and portions of Lewisville, Fort Worth and Southlake.
