Monday is the last day to register for voting in the upcoming election in November

Texas – Those who haven’t registered for the November election can do that no later than Monday, Oct. 4, state’s deadline for voting registration.

Additionally, voters can now check their voters registrations status on the Texas Secretary of State’s website on the “Am I Registered?” page. Through the page, Texans can update their information in case they have changed address or other personal information.

Since the process is not automatic, those are not registered will have to choose one of the three available ways to register for voting. The last day they can do that is Monday, October 4.

  • On the Texas Secretary of State’s online voter registration page, you can fill out and then print and sign your registration form. You MUST still mail the form to your county election office and it must be postmarked by the April 1 deadline.
  • If you don’t have a printer you can request an application be mailed to you, but that returned application must also be postmarked by the April 1 deadline.
  • You can also register to vote through your county registrar.

Those who already registered for voting will have to bring valid ID on the voting day. According to the law, the state accepts several kinds of identifications including:

  • A Texas driver’s license
  • Texas election ID certificate
  • Texas ID card
  • Texas handgun license
  • U.S. Citizenship certificate with a photo
  • U.S. Military ID with a photo
  • U.S. Passport.

For voters ages 18-69, photo IDs CAN be expired for up to four years. For those over the age of 70, a photo ID can be expired for any length of time.

If you do not have a photo ID, you may qualify for a Reasonable Impediment Declaration by showing a copy or an original of one of the following:

  • Certified domestic birth certificate or court admissible birth document
  • Current utility bill
  • Bank statement
  • Government check
  • Paycheck
  • Government document with your name and address including your voter registration certificate.
