Election Day is Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Vote by mail

IMPORTANT: If you want to vote by mail and have not yet received your mail-in ballot, contact the Hays County Elections office immediately at (512) 393-7310.

If you have questions, call 844-TX-VOTES.

Once you’ve been approved and receive your mail-in ballot, please complete it as soon as possible and either mail it back to your Early Voting Clerk or hand deliver it to their office before or on Election Day. To return your ballot in person, you must bring a state-accepted voter ID.

Important Caveat: This site will show if your mail-in ballot was received, but it will not show if it requires corrective action. Please keep an eye out for communication from the Hays County Elections Office that may offer instructions for how to correct your ballot.
 

New Required Procedure 

A new law requires that individuals who vote by mail include with both their application and mail ballot either their:

  • Texas Driver’s License number

  • Texas State ID number

  • Last four digits of their social security number, or

  • Election ID Certificate number

 

There will be a designated location on the application and the ballot’s carrier envelope where you will include one of those ID numbers.


Important Note: Due to reports of applications being rejected in some counties, we are recommending voters include BOTH the ID numbers of one of the indicated forms (either Texas Driver’s License, State ID number, or election ID certificate if you have neither) and the last four digits of their social security number.
