Vote by mail
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.
If you didn't receive your ballot for the primary this year, please call us, and we will help you. 512-898-9255.
What to bring
All you need to bring to vote is your self and your state-issued photo ID or passport.
If you do not have an acceptable form of voter ID, you may still be able to vote. Check acceptable forms of voter ID here, and view instructions for requesting an exception.
You ARE allowed to bring in a sample ballot or paper list to help you vote. You ARE NOT allowed to look at your phone or other digital device while voting.
Check your voter registration status. If you show up to vote and are not on the rolls, call the county office and ask them to confirm your eligibility.
