Hi Texas, if you want to vote in the 2022 midterm  elections there are three steps you need to take.   Register, make your plan,  and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered.

In Texas,  you have to turn in a paper registration form,   which you can get at your county election office,  or use the link at to print   one out at home. You need to register by  October 11th to vote this November.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town, can’t get  to the polls because you’re ill or disabled,   or maybe you want to vote in Texas  but you go to college somewhere else,   then you can vote absentee.

To do that, you need to fill out   a form to request your ballot from your Early  Voting Clerk by October 28th. But the sooner you   do it the better, so you have time for them  to get your application, mail you a ballot,   and for you to mail it back so that it gets  to them no later than November 8th.   Any Texas voter can vote early in  person though, from October 24th   through November 4th at an early voting  location in your county. You can find all those   locations and their hours at this link..

Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls are open from 7am to 7pm.   You’ll also need to bring a photo ID  with you. A Texas drivers license,   state ID, passport, or military ID all work, but  if you don’t have one of those, you can get a free   photo ID at a DPS Driver License office. So once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re  going to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that’s on your  ballot ahead of time, you can find a sample   ballot at so you have time  to research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from Congress   to your city council or school board.

There are links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
