Texas voters still have a few days—until Monday, February 5—to register to vote in the state’s March 6 primary elections.

“Early preparedness is key for all Texans wishing to cast a vote. If you want your voice to be heard, you have to be prepared,” Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos said in a statement.

In the primaries, voters will be able to elect candidates who will go on to race in the general election. The March 6 ballot in Bexar County will include numerous statewide positions, including for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. Voters will also be able to cast their initial votes for seats in Congress and the Texas Legislature. (Sample ballots for both the Democratic party and the Republican party are available online.)

Voters can register by mail if their voter registration application is postmarked no later than Feb. 5. Applications can be downloaded on the Texas Secretary of State’s website, or they can be found at libraries, government offices or high schools. Applications must be completely filled out and signed before they are mailed to:
Voter Registration Office
1103 S. Frio, Ste. 100
San Antonio, TX 78207

If you’re not sure whether you’re already registered to vote, the Texas Secretary of State website has a handy tool that allows you to search whether you’re already registered by inputting your Texas Driver’s License number and date of birth, or your name, county and date of birth.

If you were previously registered to vote in a different county and are now living in Bexar County, you must submit a new voter registration application to Bexar County.

In his statement, Pablos encouraged voters seeking more information to visit, or call 1-800-252-VOTE.
