If you plan on voting in the Nov. 2 election and you are not yet registered, Monday is the last day you may register to vote if you intend to cast a ballot in that election. The Nov. 2 election includes eight state constitutional amendment changes impacting taxes, the judiciary, and religious freedom. There are also several municipal propositions on the ballot, including Austin’s Proposition A, which calls for increasing police staffing and training. Find your closest voter registration site in Travis County at TexasVDRs.com. You may also register to vote at any Travis County tax office branch. (check locations and hours here). Voter registration applications are online at VoteTravis.com. The applications may be filled out online, but must be printed and mailed in or delivered to a tax office location. Voter Registrar Bruce Elfant warns against mailing in voter applications too close to the deadline, saying, “By law, we cannot accept voter registrations for the Nov. 2 election if they come in postmarked later than Oct. 4. We will still register you to vote but you won’t be eligible to cast a ballot for the Nov. 2 election.”
