State Representative Jesse Jackson
State Representative Helen Giddings

People who previously had Ray Allen as State Rep can vote in this special election. The district is a long strip in the southwest corner of Dallas County. Tarrant and Ellis County lines make two boundaries. Beltline on the east and Trinity Railroad on the north form the district. Everyone with these zip codes lives in our near the district: 75050, 75051, 75052, 75060, 75061, 75104
Texans have to be properly registered 30 days before they vote. People who moved or neglected to vote for some time, will have to scramble to get registered in time for the special election or even for the primaries on March 7. The fast way is to get a new registration card and send it in. The newest cards are available free from the Texas Secretary of State's web site: www.sos.tx.us/elections. It takes only a day to get one, but another day to send it to the County Courthouse!
The new cards have a pocket for people to put identification information. If they don't use the pocket, they will have to show their drivers' license or other I.D. the next time they vote.
Most Local 848 members will get a paid hour off on election day, but
they will have to bring back proof that they voted. New members should
especially hurry to make sure they are registered.
