Moore County Clerk Brenda McKanna and her staff have tested the voting machines that will be used Tuesday, March 3, in the so-called Super Tuesday primary election four times in the past week. She says they are error free and ready to be used on election day. With early and mail-in voting at an end, Tuesday will be the last chance voters will have to weigh in on who will be the next Moore County Tax Assessor/Collector, 69th Judicial District Attorney, and 13th Congressional District Representative. Voters Tuesday will also choose who the Republican and Democratic candidates for president will be in the November general election.
Voters will need to take a drivers license or other photo identification and go to their regular precinct polling place sometime between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm Tuesday. They must choose whether they want to vote in the Republican or the Democratic Primary. They are not allowed to vote in both. Almost all of the races of local interest are in the Republican Primary. In the case of both the tax assessor/collector and the district attorney, because there is no Democrat running, the winner of the Republican primary will take the office by default. There are three Democrats running in the congressional race, so the winner of the Democratic primary will take on the winner of the Republican primary in the general election in November to see who replaces Mac Thornberry in Washington.
The polling places for Tuesday: Precinct 101, 1st Street Annex at 310 East 1st Street; Precinct 201, the Girl's Center at 5th Street and Maddox Avenue; Precinct 202, Hillcrest Elementary School at 6th Street and Pear Avenue; Precinct 203, Double Diamond Activity Center at 110 South Club Drive in Fritch; Precinct 301, Moore County Community Building at 16th Street and Maddox Avenue; Precinct 401, Sunray City Hall at 405 Main Street in Sunray; Precinct 402, Cactus City Hall at 201 South Highway 287 in Cactus.
