Voter Registration FAQs

I heard Texas passed a new voting law, what does that mean for me?

  • Texans are now able to return your vote by mail application or ballot by hand-delivering it. Voters can hand-deliver their mail-in ballot application in-person at their Early Voting Clerk’s office through the day of the deadline.

  • If you’re assisting a voter with disabilities and are not their caregiver, you will be required to fill out a document with your name, address and relationship to the person you’re helping cast a ballot and take an oath promising only to help with reading the ballot to the voter, directing the voter to read the ballot, marking the voter's ballot, or directing the voter to mark the ballot.

When does my mail ballot need to be received in order to be counted?
