If you are planning to vote in the May 29 Republican and Democratic primary elections and still is not registered to vote, you have until Monday April 30 to fill out and send in a voter registration application.
" Registering to vote is an important first step in the voting process and can be done quickly and easily", said Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade.
The webpage www.texas.gov/voting will, for example, help citizens verify voter registration, change the address on a voter registration card, complete a voter registration form, and learn more about local representatives. Texans can also find voter information on www.votexas.org or at their local elections administrator or county clerk office. You can find out which congressional or legislative district you live in by entering your street address on the Who Represents Me form located on the Texas Legislature Online website.
You are eligible to register to vote in Texas if:
- You are a United States citizen;
- You are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
- You are at least 18 years old on Election Day;
- You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence,probation, and parole); and
- You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
