How do I know if I am registered to vote?
If you can’t remember if you are already registered to vote, use the Am I Registered? website to confirm. All you need is a Texas Driver’s license to get started.

How do I register to vote?
You can register in person at your county Voter Registrar’s office. You can also register by mail by obtaining an application from your county Voter Registrar’s office or pick up applications at libraries, government offices, or high schools. The last day to register to vote in the March 6th Primary is February 5th.

When Texans register to vote, do they register for a certain party?
No. There are only registered voters in Texas. There is no party registration.

Can any registered voter vote in any primary election?
Yes! Texas has an open primary, meaning anyone can cast a ballot in the primary of their choice, regardless of whether you’ve voted in that party’s primary before or not. Republicans can vote in the Democratic primary. Democrats can vote in the Republican primary. You can only vote in one primary, however.

If I don’t vote in the Primary, can I vote in the Primary Run-off?
Once you’ve voted in a party primary, you can vote in only that party’s run-offs. If you skip the primary, you can vote in either party’s run-offs, but you cannot cross over in the run-offs. If you vote in the Republican primary, you can’t vote in the Democratic run-off, and vice-versa. How and whether you vote in a primary and run-off has no bearing on how you must vote in the November general election.

How do I find my polling location?
Early Voting: Registered voters may vote at ANY early voting location located within your county of residence.
Election Day: On Election Day, you can vote ONLY at your assigned voting precinct. Please see this site for information on your specific precinct.
