State of Texas spotlights online voter education efforts ahead of Nov. 6 election

Texans have just more than one month to register to vote in the November election. Voters have until Oct. 9 if they wish to vote Nov. 6.

Prospective voters may go to www.votetexas.gov, the official online source for Texas voting information, to answer many questions about the election. The website is www.texas.gov's featured website of the month.

"I am thrilled VoteTexas.gov is Texas.gov's featured website this month," Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade said. "This partnership helps get the word out about VoteTexas.gov and all the resources we have to help voters make their mark on Texas and couldn't come at a better time as Texans prepare for the fall election."

Texans may look up their voter registration status, download a voter registration application and read frequently asked questions on VoteTexas.gov. The website has updates on upcoming elections, important deadlines, and resources for military, overseas, and special-needs voters.

Hays County voters may find voting and elections information on the Hays County elections website, by emailing [email protected], calling 393-7310 or in person at the Hays County Government Center, 712 S. Stagecoach Trail, Ste. 1045, in San Marcos.
