Voter registration for the primary run-off election is open through June 15. You can determine whether you are already registered to vote, and download a voter registration application if needed, at www.votetexas.gov.

The application cannot be submitted online, but must be printed, signed and mailed to your local county voter registrar by June 15.

If you did not vote in the March primary election, you may vote in either party’s primary run-off, assuming you are registered to vote or have registered by June 15. If you voted in either the Democratic or Republican March primary, you may only vote in the run-off election of the same party. To learn more, visit www.votetexas.gov.
