Prevent Your Application from Being Rejected
To prevent your application from being rejected because of ID:
- Make sure to fill out the ID section of the application. If you receive an application without an ID section, write the information in by hand.
- The secretary of state’s office says you can contact your county to ask how to add one of the required ID numbers to your voter record.
- Some advocates suggest filling out both your driver’s license/state ID number and the last four digits of your Social Security number, if you have both, to avoid issues.
- Remember which ID number you provide. The same number will be required on the outside of the carrier envelope when you submit the vote by mail ballot.
- It is highly recommended that you include your contact information so that County Election officials may contact you to correct errors if needed and your application is not delayed.
If your application was rejected:
- You are supposed to get an opportunity to fix the issue. Contact the Bexar County Elections Department at 210-335-VOTE (8683).
- County officials are supposed to provide voters with notices that their applications were rejected and information on how to correct the defects, including through the online ballot tracker here.
