New Web Tool to Help Texas Voters

By  | 

The Secretary of State has launched a new web tool to help Texans vote. It allows voters to check their registration status and make sure everything is up to date.

"The general public can verify that they are actually registered to vote or check to see if any modifications have been made like a change of address, change of name or something like that," Brazos County Tax Assessor-Collector Kristeen Roe said. "That way they can see if there is something they need to do especially for a deadline like the one coming up on Monday."

Monday, February 4 is the deadline to register to vote for the March 4 Presidential primaries. It is also the last day to make any address or name changes.

"We are doing our part to ensure that voters are prepared and fully-equipped when they show up to vote on Election Day," stated Texas Secretary of State Phil Wilson. "Now, Texans can check their registration status from their computers in plenty of time to address any possible issues before the registration deadline on February 4."

With the implementation of the Texas Election Administration Management system (TEAM), the Secretary of State's Office now maintains a, "uniform, official, centralized, interactive, computerized statewide voter registration list," as mandated by the Help America Vote Act of 2002.

Texans who registered to vote using their driver license will be able to check their status using their driver license number. All other Texans can enter their Voter Unique Identifier (VUID) found on their voter registration card to check their voting status and find polling locations.

"As we begin a busy 2008 election season, I hope all Texans will recognize their rights and duties to head to the polls on Election Day," added Wilson. "We are faced with some important decisions as we determine new leaders for our nation and our state and my office is committed to making the elections process accessible and easy for Texans in every region of the Lone Star State."
