When Can i register to vote ?

You can register to vote at any time; however, you must be registered at least 30 days before an election in which you wish to vote.

Voter registration is permanent, IF YOU KEEP YOUR REGISTRATION CURRENT. You must notify the voter registrar of any changes in information such as name change, moving to a new location within the county, or a change in your mailing address.

You may register to vote if you are at least 17 years and 10 months of age on the date the application is submitted, but you must be 18 years of age to actually vote in an election. You must register to vote at least 30 days before an election to vote in that election.

Call 903-893-8683 for more information.

What if I Move WITHIN THE COUNTY?

If You Move

WITHIN THE COUNTY OR YOUR NAME CHANGES

Notify the voter registrar in writing of the changed information by:

  • correcting the information on your current voter registration certificate, sign the back of the certificate, and return it to the registrar, or
  • if you do not have your voting certificate, send a note giving the old information as you were registered and the new information for updating, or
  • complete a voter registration application, indicating “change”, or
  • completing a statement of residence at the time of voting

You will be eligible to vote in your new precinct on the 30th day after the registrar receives the notice, meanwhile you may continue to vote in your old precinct. Before you are allowed to vote in the old precinct, the election judge will ask you to fill out a statement of residence confirming your new address.

What if I Move Outside the County?

If You Move

TO ANOTHER COUNTY

You must re-register in the county of your new residence by completing a voter registration application and mailing it to that county’s voter registrar.

You may be eligible to vote a limited ballot in the county of your new residence during the first 90 days after you move if:

  • you would have been eligible to vote in the county of former residence on Election day if you had still lived in that county;
  • the date of the election is not more than 90 days after the new residence is established; and
  • your voter registration in the county of new residence is not effective on or before election day.

VOTING BY A LIMITED BALLOT MUST BE DONE DURING THE EARLY VOTING PERIOD.
