Texans need to fill out a voter registration application at least 30 days before the election. You can request the application through the mail or find one at county voter registrars’ offices, post offices, government offices or high schools. While you can’t register online to vote in Texas unless you’re updating your driver’s license, you can print out the online application and mail it to the voter registrar in your county. Applications have to be postmarked by the Oct. 4 deadline.
To be eligible to vote by mail in Texas, you must be 65 years or older, sick or disabled, out of the county during the early voting period and Election Day, in jail but eligible to vote.
You can print a form at the websitehttps://www.sos.texas.gov/elections/voter/county.shtml or request one to be mailed to you here. Once the form is filled out, you will need to address and mail it to the early voting clerk in your county or fax the form if that option is available in the early voting clerk’s office. You also have the option of submitting a scanned copy of the completed and signed application to the early voting clerk via email, according to the Texas secretary of state’s office.
If the form is faxed or emailed, then the hard copy of the application must be mailed and received by the early voting clerk no later than the fourth business day.
