If you are a registered voter with an expired card, then you will not receive a new one until the courts decide on how the Texas congressional and state house lines will be drawn.
“A lot of voters are calling because their cards are expired,” Kristi Allyn, Taylor County Elections Administrator, said. All Texas voter registration cards expired at the end of 2011.
Usually, election officials mail out new cards, but this year, things are a little different. “We will be sending out new cards, we’re not sure when,” Allyn said.
Election offices across the state are on hold until the redistricting limbo is all settled. “We’re just waiting at this point to see what districts we’ll have to put on the cards,” Allyn explained.
