You can check your voter registration status here. You need a few things: Voter ID number or Texas Driver’s License number, your name, county of residence, and date of birth.

How do I register?
You can fill out a registration application online, but an original application with signature must still be mailed to your local county voter registrar. You can also call the statewide Voter Registration Office at 210-335-VOTE (8683) and request a voter registration application. You may also find voter registration applications at libraries, government offices, high schools, or with volunteer deputies.

When is the deadline to register?
Turn in your application by October 10, 2023 to vote in the November 7, 2023 election. Get an application online here.

I just moved. Do I need to re-register?
If you moved to a different county, yes. If you moved to a different address within the same county, no. All you have to do is update your address online. You can also get a new voter registration application, make note of your new address, and mail it to the Voter Registration Office.

When does early voting begin?
Early starts October 23, 2023 through November 3, 2023.

When is Election Day?
Election Day is November 7, 2023. Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
