REMEMBER TO TAKE A VALID FORM OF ID WHEN YOU VOTE!
REGISTER TO VOTE
Voter registration is simple, but it cannot be done online in Texas. We can send you a registration form or you can print one out and mail to the El Paso County Elections Department.
To register, you must be 18 years or older on Election Day and a U.S. Citizen. You can register two months before your 18th birthday (17 years and 10 months).
VOTING BY MAIL
Voting by mail (absentee voting) is another safe and secure method to vote; however, you must meet one of the following requirements:
Over the age of 65
Expected to give birth within three weeks before or after Election Day
Out of the country during early voting and Election Day
Confined in jail or involuntary civil commitment
The vote by mail process is as follows:
Return it to the El Paso County Election Department via mail (Early Voting Clerk, 500 E. San Antonio Ave., Suite #314, El Paso, Texas 79901), fax (915-546-2220), or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you either fax or email the application, you still have to mail the original. After you email or fax your application, please mail it because by state law the application has to be in at the elections department by the 4th business day after submission via fax or email. There is a deadline to return the application and it is NOT a postmark deadline. For the 2022 Midterm Election, the forms MUST be in the elections department by close of business on October 28th. Mail, fax, email it sooner (We recommend by the 24th)
In a few days you will receive your ballot in the mail. Be on the lookout in your mailbox. If it has not arrived within a week, please call the Elections Department at 915-546-2154.
Once you receive the envelope, you will open it and there will be three important items:
The actual ballot
The ballot envelope
The return ballot
You will fill out the ballot and once you've voted for the candidates of your choosing, you will put the ballot in the ballot envelope which keeps your vote private. Then you will put the ballot envelope into the return envelope and mail it.
While it's not required, we recommend placing two 1st class stamps on the return envelope to ensure it is mailed.
The ballot MUST be at the Elections department by 7:00pm on Election Day! Do not hold off on mailing your ballot because it might not get there in time.
What happens if I want to vote in person instead OR it's almost Election Day and the ballot has not arrived, OR it's Monday before Election Day and I still haven't mailed it:
You can still vote in person regardless of applying for a ballot by mail! If you have the ballot and have not filled it out, you can return the unused ballot to the election judge during early voting/Election Day and vote.
If you don't have it or it never arrived, you can still vote too! The Election Judge should allow you to fill out a provisional ballot and it will not be opened until after the election. If the judge does not allow you to fill out the provisional ballot, please contact the Elections Department immediately at (915) 546-2154.
If you filled out the ballot but it's too late to mail it, you can return it to the elections department! You personally have to return the ballot on Election Day at the county courthouse. Unfortunately, you cannot ask for a friend or family member to return it for you, you must do it yourself. Please call (915) 546-2154 for more information.
In Texas, you must have a qualified ID to vote, however, not having an ID does not completely disqualify you from voting!
List of the acceptable forms of photo ID:
Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
Texas Handgun License issued by DPS
United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph
United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph

Now, what happens if I don't have these IDs or my Driver's License/ID is expired?There are additional supplemental items that you can bring to the polling place that you can use.
