Register to vote in a few simple steps
Check to see if you’re already registered to vote and learn how to register
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Sept. 20 marks National Voter Registration Day and also kicks off the countdown to Election day on Nov. 8, 2022. Texas law requires eligible voters to register at least 30 days before Election Day. The voter registration deadline for the Nov. 8 Elections is Oct. 11, 2022.
The civic holiday, first observed in 2012, places a focus on getting people registered to vote well ahead of the deadline.
Are you already registered?
Registering to vote can be a simple process. Once you register to vote, you will only need to re-register if you’ve moved, changed your name, want to switch political parties or you haven’t voted in the past four years. If you’re not sure if you’re already registered to vote, you can check your registration status here.
Eligibility for Registration
If you are not registered to vote, you can start the registration process after making sure you’re eligible to vote. You are eligible to register to vote if:
- You are a United States citizen
- You are a resident of the county where you submit the application
- You are at least 17 years and 10 months old on the date your voter registration application is submitted, and you are 18 years of age on Election Day.
- You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole)
- You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
