BEAUMONT - Today is your last chance to register to vote in time for election day on November 8.
Here's how you can get registered TODAY and be able to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
You can need to mail your completed registration form to the county registrar's office before the end of the day.
As long as your envelope is postmarked October 11 your registration will be processed in time.
Early voting runs from October 24 to November 4.
You are eligible to register to vote 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.
Find Out if You’re Already Registered to Vote
Use the "Am I Registered?" website that not only confirms whether you are registered or not, but will even allow you to search for your polling place location prior to an election. The service is easy to use. All you need is a Texas Driver’s license to get started. If you know that you have not registered to vote then please use the Informal Online Application service which is displayed below.
Where to Get a Application
You can register in person at your county Voter Registrar’s office. (In most Texas counties, the Tax Assessor-Collector is also the Voter Registrar. In some counties, the County Clerk or Elections Administrator registers voters.)
Or you can register by mail by obtaining an application from your county Voter Registrar’s office or pick up applications at libraries, government offices, or high schools.
Get An Informal Online Application
You may fill out a voter registration application online, print it and mail it to the voter registrar in your county of residence.
You are not registered until you have filled out the online application, printed it, and mailed it to your local County Voter Registrar.
The County Voter Registrar’s address can be found at the top of the online outputted voter registration application once you have submitted your information from the fill-in-the blanks screen.
Note: This service is best viewed on Internet Explorer 7 and higher or Firefox.
Other Voter Registration Application Methods
Voter registration applications are also available at many post offices, libraries, Texas Department of Public Safety offices, and Texas Health and Human Services Commission offices throughout the state.
