The tax office expects to exceed the 90 percent figure with Tuesday's additional voter registrations, Travis County Voter Registrar Bruce Elfant said at a news conference Monday.
There are 713,871 Travis County voter registrations, and on Monday the tax office was backlogged with more than 11,000 voter registration cards to process, according to the county.
“It is likely that by midnight Tuesday, 100,000 more Travis County citizens will be registered to vote than four years ago for the past presidential election,” Elfant said.
There is still time to register—here's how:
On Tuesday, the main Travis County Tax Office will register voters until midnight and use a new electronic voter registration module. Residents can use the bank of self-serve computers to fill out their information and print and sign their voter registration forms to turn in at the tax office.
On Tuesday, residents can register to vote at all ThunderCloud Sub shops and Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., according to the county. Additionally, University of Texas at Austin students can register to vote on campus from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. along Speedway Road and at the UT Tower from 6 p.m.-midnight.
Voter registration forms are also available at many other businesses as well as libraries, U.S. Post Offices and government offices. Postage-paid voter registration applications must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, Oct. 11.
