Texans have less than 30 days left to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election. Completed voter registration forms must be returned to your local election office by Oct. 5.
You are eligible to register to vote if:
- you are a United States citizen;
- you are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
you are at least 17 years and 10 months old, and you will be 18 years of age on Election Day.
- you are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole); or
- you have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
Ways to register:
- Complete an online application, print it out and then mail it to your county election office.
- Request that an application be mailed to you. Once the application arrives, fill it out and return it in the postage-paid envelope provided.
- Visit your local voter registrar to complete the voter registration process in person.
Am I already registered?
- You can confirm your voter registration status here.
- If you moved from one place to another in the same county, you can change your information online at the secretary of state’s voter registration name/address change website.
Early voting begins on Oct. 13 and ends on Oct. 30. Gov. Greg Abbott added about one more week to early voting due to the pandemic.
