Deadline To Register To Vote Coming Up – Here’s Where To Find Out If You Can Vote
Statewide primaries will be held on March 6, and you have until February 5 to register to vote.
Texans can’t register online, so you’ll have to go to the El Paso County Election Department inside the County Courthouse. You’ll need a photo ID but if you don’t have one, you can bring another form, like a current utility bill, but you will need to sign a declaration confirming you are telling the truth. You can also register by filling out the application at most post offices, the DMV, or armed serviced recruitment centers.
Mailed applications must be postmarked on or before February 5. You should re-register or update your information if you’ve changed your name or moved. If you are under 18, you can register as long as you will be 18 by Election Day.
There are a lot of questions that can be answered by clicking on the El Paso County Elections Department website. You can find out how to change your name and address, register to vote if you're a college student, find out which are acceptable forms of I.D. to register to vote, or even vote by mail.
Make sure you are registered to vote and cast your ballot, or else don't complain when people you don't like or initiatives you don't agree with get voted in.
