Who Can Vote?
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 are 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); and
** 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.
Are you already registered?
To confirm your voter registration status, you may select one of three methods to perform a search:
** Your Texas driver’s license number, if you provided it when you applied for voter registration;
** Your Voter Unique Identifier (VUID), which appears on your voter registration certificate;
** Your first and last name.
Where to Get a Application?
You can register in person at your county Voter Registrar’s office. (In most Texas counties, the Tax Assessor-Collector is also the Voter Registrar. In some counties, the County Clerk or Elections Administrator registers voters.)
Or you can register by mail by obtaining an application from your county Voter Registrar’s office or pick up applications at libraries, government offices, or high schools.
Get An Informal Online Application:
You may fill out a voter registration application online, print it and mail it to the voter registrar in your county of residence. You are not registered until you have filled out the online application, printed it, and mailed it to your local County Voter Registrar.
The County Voter Registrar’s address can be found at the top of the online outputted voter registration application once you have submitted your information from the fill-in-the blanks screen.
Note: This service is best viewed on Internet Explorer 7 and higher or Firefox.
