Voter Registration Information

 

Eligibility

To be eligible for voter registration, applicants must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of the county, 18 years of age by election day (you may apply for registration at age 17 years, 10 months), not a convicted felon (unless a person's sentence is completed including any probation or parole), and not declared mentally incompetent by a court of law.

If for any reason you cannot register yourself, with your permission , your spouse, parent, or child may complete and sign a voter registration application for you, as long as that person is a registered voter or has applied for voter registration.   This person is known as your “agent.”

Please note that all voters who register to vote in Texas must provide a Texas driver’s license number or personal identification number issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety.   If you do not have such a number, then you must state that fact on the application and provide the last four digits of your social security number.   If you do not have a social security number, you must also state that fact on your application.

On August 10, 2016, a federal district court entered an order changing the voter identification requirements for all elections held in Texas after August 10, 2016 until further notice. As a result,   voters who have obtained an acceptable form of photo identification for voting listed below are still required to present it in order to vote in person in all Texas elections .   The acceptable form of photo identification may be expired up to four years. Voters who have not been able to obtain one of the forms of acceptable photo identification listed below, and have a reasonable impediment or difficulty to obtaining such identification, may present a supporting form of identification and execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, noting the voter’s reasonable impediment to obtaining an acceptable form of photo identification, and stating that the voter is the same person on the presented supporting form of identification.

This requirement is effective immediately.

  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas license to carry a handgun issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
  • United States passport

With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place.
