2019 Voter Registration

The voter registration deadline is Monday, October 7, 2019.

How can I determine if I’m registered to vote?

You can check your voter registration status here. All you need is a few things: Voter ID number or Texas Driver’s License number, your name, county of residence, and date of birth.

How do I register?

You can fill out a registration application online, but an original application with signature must still be mailed to your local county voter registrar.

You can also call the Voter Registration Office at 210-335-VOTE (8683) and request a voter registration application. You may also find voter registration applications at libraries, government offices, high schools, or with volunteer deputies.

When is the deadline to register?

Turn in your application by Monday, October 7, 2019. Get an application online here.

I just moved. Do I need to re-register?

If you moved to a different county, yes. If you moved to a different address within the same county, no. All you have to do is update your address online. You can also get a new voter registration application, make note of your new address, and mail it to the Voter Registration Office.

When does early voting begin?

Early voting starts Monday, October 21, 2019 and runs through Friday, November 1, 2019.

When is Election Day?
