What else?

There are a few other ways for people to register to vote. To find a voter registration application, residents may request one from the Williamson County Elections Department or find one throughout the county in post offices, libraries or Texas Department of Public Safety offices.

Once the application is filled out, it can be mailed to Williamson County Election, P.O. Box 209, Georgetown, Texas, 78627. Applications may also be dropped off at the elections office at 301 SE Inner Loop, Ste. 104, Georgetown.

Texas residents do not register by political party. Eligible voters must reside in the county where they submit the application. They also must be at least 17 years and 10 months old. Voters can check the status of their registration at www.votetexas.gov.
