(Seguin) -- Voters will be heading to the polls today. Voters must choose whether or not they want to cast their ballots in either the Democratic or the Republican primary.  The presidential race is on both ballots with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic ballot, while names like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio dominate the GOP ballot. 
 
Local contested races will also appear on the Republican ballot. They include county tax assessor-collector; precinct 1 and precinct 3 county commissioner; precinct 1 and precinct 4 constable and District Judge, 2nd 25th Judicial District. Local voters will also seek the Republican and Democratic nominee for the U.S. Representative, District 15 seat.
 
Reminding voters to get out and make their voices heard is Alicia Pierce, a spokesperson for the Texas Secretary of State Office. Pierce says the office of Carlos Cascos wants people to be reminded of the various resources available to help them be ready at the polls.
 
"Texas voters who have questions about the process of voting or where they need to go, they can visit votetexas.gov. There is a link there to find their polling place location. If someone doesn't have internet access or it's just not handy for them, they can also call 1-800-252-VOTE and get information that way. So, there's a lot of resources for Texans to make sure that they have what they need when it comes time when they have to go to the polls," said Pierce.
 
Pierce says voters are reminded today to adjust their schedule accordingly to ensure proper arrival at their respective polling location.
 
"The polls will be opened from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and if you come in at 6:30 and you're able to get in line, but there's a line -- if you're in line by 7 p.m., you should have the opportunity to vote. So get in line by 7 p.m. Hopefully, you don't have to wait until the last minute but if it happens, get in line before 7 p.m. and you'll be able to vote. You'll need to bring one of seven approved forms of photo I.D. if you're voting in person. You can find a full list of those at votetexas.gov. It includes things like your driver's license, personal I.D. card of you issued by D.P.S. or a U.S. Passport. Those are all options for people. When they come to the polls, they will be asked to present a form of photo I.D.," said Pierce.
 
Residents who still aren't sure where they need to vote may also call the Guadalupe County Election’s Office at 830-303-6363 or go online to
www.co.guadalupe.tx.us/elections/. Seguin Radio KWED will begin its live election coverage beginning at 7:05 p.m. Election Coverage is being made possible thanks to Gift & Gourmet.
