Texas residents who plan to cast votes in Nov. 8 midterm elections have until Oct. 11 to register to vote. Those who have had recent name and/or address changes have the same deadline to update their voter registration status.

Fort Bend County voters will be selecting candidates in county, state and federal races. Early voting will run Oct. 24-Nov. 4. As of Oct. 6, the Fort Bend County elections administrator’s office reported over 520,000 county residents were registered and eligible to vote.

Citizens can confirm their voter registration status at the Fort Bend County Election Administrator’s Office website or at the Texas secretary of state’s office website.

Fort Bend County voters can also visit the election department website for voting locations, sample ballots and other important information leading up to Election Day.

  • be at least 18 years old;

  • be a United States citizen;

  • not have been determined by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be totally or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote;

  • not have been finally convicted of a felony, or, if convicted, to have fully discharged the sentence, completed a period of probation ordered by any court or been pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disability to vote; and

Those who have not yet registered to vote may print, sign and return a completed voter registration application by the 30th day before any election in which you desire to vote.
