Thanks to our partner TV station Channel 6 - here is your one-stop-shop with information about voting, registering and more to make sure you're ready to cast your ballot in the November 3 election.
Early voting in Texas is October 13th - October 30th
How can I register to vote?
If you're looking to check if you're already registered or not, you can check the status online at the Texas Secretary of State's website.
Looking to register? In Texas, you can register online or request a printed application. If you register to vote with a printed application, send the completed printed application to you local voter registrar.
In case you recently moved to another place in the same county, you can update your address and other information online.However, if you are registered in one county and moved to a different county, you'll need to fill out a new voter registration application in your new county of residence. In that case, you will not be able to use the online name/address change tool.
You can pick up a voter application at your county voter registrar office if you would rather register in-person.
Remember, you are eligible to register to vote if:
- You are a U.S. citizen
- You are a resident of the county where you submit the application
- You are at least 17 years old and 10 months, and you are 18 years old on Election Day
- You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible if you have completed your sentence, probation and parole); and
- You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally or mentally incapacitated without the right to vote
