Voters over 65, or disabled voters, can vote by mail in Texas. Even better, we only have to ask once for an application that applies to every election in a given year. Most Democratic seniors in Texas were mailed an application for ballots by mail from the Texas Democratic Party. All you have to do is sign and mail it in!
Here’s what it looks like:
All you have to do is sign and mail it in! Envelope provided, but you must add a stamp.
You may get a phone call Monday night from a friendly Democratic volunteer to remind you to mail it in. You must get it to the election clerk in time for them to mail your ballot for the March 6 Democratic primary.

If you did not receive an application to vote by mail, apply now and vote by mail all year! Here’s how:
Fill out the form. There are boxes for “annual application,” and a choice of political party for primary elections. Mail or deliver it to your county elections office:
115 W. Houston
(903) 893-8683 Phone
The addresses for other counties are on the Secretary of State page: http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/voter/votregduties.shtml
For every election in 2018, you’ll receive your ballot in advance of the election. You’ll have plenty of time to look over all the candidates and propositions. Then make sure you mail it in time to get to Deana before the election day!
If you are voting early because of an expected absence, you may apply in person at the elections office for a ballot by mail before the early “voting in person” period begins (usually the 17th day before the election). If you are voting by mail because you are disabled or are 65 years of age or older, you may use a single application to request ballots by mail for all county elections in the calendar year. To do so, simply mark “Annual Application” on your application for a ballot by mail when selecting the election for which you are applying.
