Time is running out for Texans to vote in the Nov. 6 presedential election. Oct. 9 is the deadline to register. Voters who did not vote in the May 29 primary election are still qualified to vote in the general election. Early voting begins Oct. 22.
To register to vote, students must to fill out a voter’s registration application or register in person.
Students can register in person or register by mail by obtaining an application at their county voter registrar’s office. (In most Texas counties, the Tax Assessor-Collector is also the Voter Registrar. In some counties, the County Clerk or Elections Administrator registers voters.)
After being submitted by the county voter registrar, a student’s registration becomes effective 30 days after being submitted. A voter card will then be mailed to the voter who will need to sign by the “X” on the yellow area on the front side of the card.
Students will need to take this card with them to the polls to vote.
