Top 10 Voting FAQs

Click on a question below to see the answer.

You can confirm your registration status on the Texas Secretary of State’s website. If you registered in the last few weeks and can’t find your registration, call your county voter registrar’s office to confirm your status.

Good news! In many cities you can vote at ANY polling location during early vote. For more information on voting locations for early vote and election day, visit the Texas Secretary of State’s website.

You can use one of the following 7 forms of photo identification (can be expired up to four years):

  • Driver license
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate
  • 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

That’s okay, as long as your name matches, your ID will be accepted. Texas does not require the address to match.

Unfortunately, the deadline to update your registration in another county has passed. Therefore you have to vote in the county where you are registered to vote. However, voting by mail might be an option for you. See the FAQ below on voting by mail eligibility and how to obtain a vote by mail application.

The voter registration applications and the vote by mail applications are completely different and separate forms. If you would like to vote by mail you can check if you qualify and fill out a Vote By Mail Application. However, in order to vote by mail, you must be registered to vote.

You can vote by mail if: 

  • You will be outside of their county during Early Vote AND Election Day
  • You who are sick or have a disability
  • You who are confined in jail without a felony conviction
  • You are 65 and over on Election Day (what are you doing on this website?!)

If you are eligible, you can request an application to vote by mail here.

But keep this in mind: Applications to vote by mail must be in the hands of elections officials by Tuesday, April 20.

Yes! The Voter ID card is not required if you have one of the following 7 forms of photo identification (can be expired up to four years):

  • Driver license
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate
  • 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

For voters aged 18-69, ID must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place. If you are 70 years of age or older, you may use a form of acceptable photo identification that has expired if the identification is otherwise valid.
