Protect Your Vote

 

Protect your vote by planning ahead

  • Well before the registration deadline, use the  registration check of the Texas Secretary of State Elections Division to make sure you are registered in the county where you reside.
  • Update your name or address if they have changed since you registered:
  • Add an Election Protection Coalition Hotline telephone number (see below) to your cell phone so that you can step out and call for expert advice if you run into problems at the polls.
  • Take advantage of Early Voting for shorter lines and so that there is time to resolve any registration or ID issues.
  • Along with your required voter ID, it is a good idea to bring your voter registration card with you to the polls so that if your name is not on the Official List of Registered Voters, you have proof that you are registered. sample voter registration card
  • Make sure the selections on the ballot summary card—which will print out after you make selections on the computer screen—are exactly what you chose before putting it in the tabulator to cast your ballot.  This is your opportunity to verify that your ballot says what you want it to.  Request a new ballot if any of the choices printed are not correct.
