LIST: East Texas races, voting locations for March 1 primary election

The March 2022 primary election is on the horizon and voters should prepare now to ensure they have the information needed to cast a ballot.

TYLER, Texas — The March 2022 primary election is on the horizon and voters should prepare now to ensure they have the information needed to cast a ballot in the Lone Star State.

According to CBS19's sister station, WFAA, some important changes to Texas voting laws include:

No more automatic distribution of mail-in ballots

While many Texans might automatically qualify for mail-in voting, they won't automatically receive an application 

Senate Bill 1 prevents election officials from sending unsolicited mail ballot applications. If they do so, they'll face a state jail felony charge.

Updated ID requirements

Mail voters will now have to include one of three identification methods on their ballot: Their driver's license number, election identification certificate or the last four digits of their Social Security number. That's in addition to a signature that can be matched with a previous signature in Texas Department of Public Safety records.

More autonomy for poll watchers

Poll watchers, who observe voting and counting for each political party, will now have "free movement" in voting precincts, though they still won't have be able to watch people cast their ballot.

Under previously law, poll watchers were allowed to sit "conveniently near" election workers, according to the Texas Tribune.

Voters with questions about how to cast a ballot in the upcoming election can call 1-800-252-VOTE or visit VoteTexas.gov for more information.
