Q: Who votes for who in the January election? Since it’s the Republican presidential primary, does that mean I have to be a Republican to vote for my city commissioner?
A: Any registered voter, regardless of their political affiliation, in districts one and three can vote for a commissioner, according to city clerk Rebecca Haynes. While the election coincides with the Republican primary, that only means that people who are registered Republican will have an additional item to consider on their ballot. Anyone in those two districts can vote.
If you are registered to vote in District One, you may vote for a candidate in that district.
If you are registered to vote in District Three, you may vote for a candidate in that district.
The deadline to register to vote is January 3, 2012. To view the city’s district maps, please visit the city’s web site
