If you have moved since you last registered to vote, you need to update your voter registration to change your address:
- If you moved within the same county, you can change your address online.
- If you have moved to another county, you must re-register by submitting a new voter registration application.
Voter registration applications and change of address forms must be received in the County Voter Registrar's office or postmarked 30 days before an election in order for you to be eligible to vote in that election.
To be eligible to register in Texas, you must:
- be a U.S. citizen;
- be a resident of the county;
- be 18 years old (you may register at 17 years and 10 months);
- not a convicted felon (unless a person's sentence is completed, including any probation or parole)
- not declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law
- You may request a postage-paid application by filling out this form so that a voter registration application can be mailed to you. You must mail the voter registration application to the voter registrar in your county of residence. 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.
- Qualified voters without an approved photo ID may obtain a free Election Identification Card from DPS. Find out more at dps.texas.gov.
