An absentee ballot can be requested through the Texas County clerk's office, which is situated in the Texas County Administrative Center. 

With elections on the horizon and political signs beginning to appear, Texas County Prosecutor Mike Anderson reminds the public that removing or destroying campaign signs is punishable by a fine and jail time.

Anderson said he has received reports of offenses related to candidate signs in the county. The state statute says it is illegal to “steal, willfully deface, mutilate or destroy any campaign yard sign on private property.” The crime is punishable by a fine up to $2,500, up to a year in jail or a combination of both.

“Hopefully everyone can respect the Democratic process,” Anderson said in a news release, “and the candidates’ rights to put out their signs.”
