When you visit this page, here's what you need to look for to determine if you are voting eligibility.

If you aren't sure, have moved or just turned 18, here are a few tips to help you register to vote.

Informal Online Application

Texas does not have a formal online voter registration format. Instead, there is an "informal voter registration page" in which you can complete the application online, but you must print and mail it.

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.

Don't have access to a printer?

You can visit these websites for assistance with printing and mailing your voter registration.
