Vote by mail deadline is tomorrow

Thursday, February 20, 2020 by Tai Moses

If you are registered to vote, over 65, sick or disabled, out of the county on election day and during early voting, or in jail but otherwise eligible to vote, you may vote by mail. Grace Chimene, president of the League of Women Voters of Texas, wants Texan voters who vote by mail to remember to mail their applications to their county elections office before Friday. She says, “The application needs to arrive by Feb. 21 – if the application is postmarked Feb. 20, but arrives Feb. 22, you will not be able to vote by mail.” Voting by mail is simple. Just follow these steps, courtesy of the League:

  1. Print an application: Check the Democratic Primary or the Republican Primary to receive the correct ballot.
  2. Fill out and mail it to your early voting clerk in the county that you are registered to vote in.
  3. Voters should sign their application to vote by mail the same way they will sign their ballot.
