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.

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

Citizens can confirm their voter registration status at the Montgomery County Elections Office website or at the Texas Secretary of State’s Office website.

The county elections office website also offers voting locations, sample ballots and other important information leading up to Election Day.


To register to vote, visit the Texas Secretary of State's Office website or pick up an application at a U.S. post office, library, high school or other government office. Individuals may fill out the application—the name on the application must exactly match your approved photo ID that you will have present for voting—and mail it to the following address.
Elections Administrator

P.O. Box 2646

Conroe, Texas

The physical address of the Montgomery County Elections Administrator is 9159 Airport Road, Conroe.
