The voter registration deadline for Texas’ March 3 primary elections is Feb. 3. The deadline applies to new voters registering for the first time and for returning voters with new names or addresses needing to update their registration.

In Montgomery County, several county, state and federal races will be included on ballots for both the Democratic and Republican parties. Early voting will be held from Feb. 18-28 at eight locations across the county.

Montgomery County residents wishing to confirm the status of their voter registration can look up their information through the websites of the Montgomery County elections administrator and voter registrar or the Texas secretary of state.

The county elections website contains additional information about voter registration, polling locations and sample ballots for both parties’ primary elections.

According to the secretary of state, eligible Texas voters must be U.S. citizens residing in the county of their registration and at least 18 years old by election day. Citizens as young as 17 years and 10 months old may register to vote provided they will turn 18 by election day. Voters cannot be convicted felons—unless their sentence, including probation or parole, is completed—or legally declared to be mentally incapacitated.

Voters who are 65 years or older, disabled, out of the county on election day and during the early voting period, or in jail may also apply to vote early by mail. Voters interested in submitting an application for a ballot by mail can print that application online or request the form to be mailed to their address.

Montgomery County residents who have not yet registered to vote may:

  • Fill out a voter registration application at the county elections administrator’s office, located at 9159 Airport Road, Conroe.

  • Pick up and fill out a voter registration application at other local government offices, high schools or public libraries.

  • Fill out a voter registration application online, then print and mail it to the county voter registrar.

  • Request a postage-paid voter registration form to be sent in the mail.

  • Contact the county elections administrator’s office for more information at 936-539-7843.

Completed voter registration applications can be mailed at least 30 days before election day to:
