VOTE411, launched by the League of Women Voters, is a "one-stop-shop" for election related information. It provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information on several aspects of the election process. An important component of VOTE411.org is the polling place locator, which enables users to type in their address and retrieve personalized voting information: upcoming elections, what's on your ballot, check your voter registration, find your polling place, and upcoming debates,
Voters in Texas may no longer check one box to vote for one party’s candidates in every partisan race. Instead, voters mark a candidate for each race. Candidates representing a party are identified with a letter following their name: “R” for Republican, “D” for Democrat, “L” for Libertarian, or “G” for Green. Candidates in many local elections are nonpartisan and do not represent a party.
You can also register in person at your county's Voter Registrar's Office.
To update your registration after a move, name change, or other registration information change, submit a new voter registration form to your voter registrar. If you have moved to a new location in the same county, you may submit an address change online.
The voter registrar in each county maintains the voter rolls. To remove someone from a voter roll, please contact the local voter registrar. The Texas Secretary of State's Office maintains a list of County Voter Registrars offices.
