TAX & LICENSE / VOTER RESOURCES

Voter Registration
Texas voters must be at least 18 years of age, a resident of the state, a U.S. citizen, and be registered at least 30 days prior to an election. Qualified new residents of Texas can register immediately, although a 30-day processing period occurs before registration is effective. It is possible to register by mail; both the application and postage are free of charge. The Texas Elections Division provides general assistance on voter registration and election issues online and through its toll-free number:

If you move within the state of Texas, you must re-register and notify your local Voter Registrar. As long as you keep the same address, you will be permanently registered to vote. Every two years, voters receive a registration certificate. Any errors should be reported to the County Tax Assessor/Collector’s Office. This office is responsible for voter registration on a local level and will provide additional information.
