Vote By Mail

Find your polling place:

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

Make sure to mail your vote by mail ballot back in ASAP.

Unfortunately, the deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the March 3rd Primary Election has passed. However, there are still options for you to vote. You can find your early voting or Election Day polling place here.

If going into the polling place would be a challenge for you, you can vote “curbside” from your car at any early voting site or Election Day polling place. The election workers will bring a ballot out to you at your car.


  • Can everyone vote by mail?
    • No. To be eligible to vote by mail, you must be:
      • 65 years old or older by Election Day
      • Have a disability
      • Be outside of your county during the entire early voting period (February 18-28) and on Election Day (March 3)
      • Be confined to jail but not due to an active felony conviction
    • However, if one of these doesn’t describe you but you want to vote before Election Day, everyone can vote early. Find a convenient early voting location here.
  • When does my ballot need to be in by in order to be counted?
    • Send your ballot in as soon as possible. The absolute latest that your county can receive your ballot is 7pm on Election Day (if it’s not postmarked) or 5pm the day after Election Day (as long as it’s postmarked by 7pm on Election Day).
  • I applied but haven’t received my mail ballot yet. What should I do?

    • You can call your Early Voting Clerk to confirm they received your application in time and whether they’ve mailed your ballot. Find the phone number for your Early Voting Clerk here.
    • You can go vote early or on Election Day. If it would be challenging to go into the polling place, you can vote curbside where the election workers bring a ballot out to you at your car. Note that if your Early Voting Clerk has sent you a ballot, you will have to vote provisionally. But your provisional ballot should be counted as long as you have not also sent in your mail ballot.
    • If you’re worried you won’t get your ballot in time to mail it back by the deadline, call 844-TX-VOTES and we’ll explore all your options with you.
  • I’m helping a military or overseas voter. How can they get a ballot?
    • There are special provisions and deadlines to make voting easier for military personnel and overseas citizens. Get more information here.
  • Can I get a mail ballot for the elections later this year?
    • Although you can’t get a mail ballot for the March 3rd primary anymore, you may be able to fill out the application to receive ballots for the remaining 2020 elections in the mail here.
