Registration FAQs

  • Q: How do I register to vote?

    We suggest you use Register2Vote. Simply fill out the Register2Vote online application. They will then mail you a voter registration card pre-filled with your information and a prepaid addressed envelope. Simply sign the registration form and put it back in the mail. They will use USPS tracking technology to ensure that your registration arrives safely at your local County Registrar.

    Another option is to fill out the Voter Registration Application form, print it, sign it, stamp it, and drop it in the mail yourself. Click here to fill out the Texas Voter Registration Application.

    Remember, Texas does not have online voter registration, so your application isn’t complete until you print, sign, stamp, and mail it to your county voter registration office.

  • Q: What is mail? Where am I supposed to get these “postage stamps?”

    Unfortunately, you cannot register to vote online in Texas. So snail mail it is. But you can request postage-paid registration be sent to you.

  • Q: If I send my registration application by the deadline, what happens next?

    Your voter registration is effective 30 days after it’s submitted (and accepted*). The county office will put your name on the voter registration list, and mail your voter registration certificate to you. Once you get it, be sure to sign by the X on the front of the card (the blue area) and keep your voter registration card.

    * If your application is missing information, you’ll get a notice in the mail and have a deadline to respond.

  • Q. I’m registered to vote, but I moved this past year. What do I need to do?

    If you moved within the same county where you’re currently registered, you can submit the "in county" change online OR you can file your new address in writing with your county voter registration office.

    If you moved to a new county, you must re-register in your new county of residence by Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
