To vote in Texas, you must be registered to vote. Simply pick up a voter registration application, fill it out, and mail it in at least 30 days before the election date. Your application must be received in the Voter Registrar’s office or postmarked at least 30 days before an election for you to be eligible to vote in the election you want to participate in.

All voters who register to vote in Texas must provide a valid Texas driver’s license number or personal identification number issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). If you don’t have such a number, simply provide the last four digits of your social security number. If you don’t have a social security number, you need to state that fact.

We all have rights when it comes to voting and as a registered voter, and Texas has a list of rights for us the voters. November 4th, Texans will elect a new governor for the first time in 14 years. Greg Abbott,Wendy Davis,Kathie Glass and Brandon Parmer are all on the ballot for governor.
