Voter Registration

If you have additional questions, call 844-TX-VOTES

The deadline to register to vote in the December runoff elections (occurring in certain counties and cities in Texas) has passed, but there may still be opportunities to vote. Review the FAQs below or call 844-TX-VOTES.


  • How can I confirm I’m registered to vote?
    • To confirm you are registered to vote, go online to the Secretary of State’s Am I Registered page. There, you’ll be prompted to enter your date of birth, and either your VUID (from your voter registration card), your Texas Driver’s License number (TDL), or your name and county where you are registered.
    • If you can’t find your registration there, you can also call your county’s voter registrar. You can find their contact information here.
  • I updated my registration or sent in my application. How long should it be before I’m registered?
    • By law, your county’s voter registrar must process your registration within 7 days of you submitting your application.
    • If your application was postmarked by the deadline (30 days before the runoff election in your jurisdiction), you are eligible to vote anytime during early voting or on Election Day. You do not have to wait until Election Day.
  • What are my options if I didn’t update my registration address by the deadline?

    • Did you move within the same county?
      • If you vote early, you can vote a regular ballot at any early voting site after completing a statement of residence. On Election Day, if your county allows voters to vote at any polling place in the county, you can choose any site, complete the statement of residence and vote a regular ballot. On Election Day, if your county does not allow you to vote anywhere, you should go to the polling place for where you are registered (i.e., your old address) and you complete the statement of residence and then vote there.
    • Did you move from a different county in Texas?
      • You can vote a limited ballot at the Main Early Voting Location in your county. We have collected information on voting a limited ballot for select counties here. If there is no information for your county or you have additional questions, call your county election official.
    • Please call our voter assistance hotline at 844-TX-VOTES to learn more about what options you may have.
  • I’ve never been registered to vote and I missed the deadline. How do I get registered to vote for the next election?
    • To register by mail:
      • Print out a voter registration form here here. You will also need a stamp and an envelope.
      • If you don’t have a printer, you can also look up a place to print here.
    • To register in person, find your county and find the address and hours of your registrar’s office here.
    • To register online and update your driver’s license or state ID, follow the instructions here.
  • What are the requirements to be eligible to register to vote?
    • Are a United States citizen
    • Will be 18 years old by Election Day (and are at least 17 years and 10 months old when you submit your application)
