Sept. 22 is National Voter Registration Day, a nonpartisan, civic effort to encourage eligible U.S. citizens to confirm their voter registration status in time for the upcoming election.

Texas residents planning to cast votes in the Nov. 3 general election have until Oct. 5 to register to vote. Those who have had recent name and/or address changes have the same deadline to update their voter registration status.

Williamson County voters will be selecting candidates in local, state and federal races, with early voting running from Oct. 13-30. The last day to apply for ballot by mail is Oct. 23.

Who is eligible to register to vote?


In Texas, citizens do not register by political party, but simply register in their county of current residence.

Voters must meet the following requirements to register.

  • Be a United States citizen;

  • Be a resident of the county in which the application is submitted;

  • Be at least 17 years and 10 months of age;

  • Not have been convicted of a felony, unless sentence, including any incarceration, probation or parole, has been completed; and

  • Not have been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
