New to Voting?
Joy and Lady can't get to a voting location, but you can!
If you're a first time voter in Texas or you've moved since the last election, you'll need to either register in person at your county Voter Registrar's Office or complete a voter registration form and mail it. Want to vote in the November 3rd general election? Your registration application must be mailed and postmarked by October 5th.
