If you fit any of these qualifications, you may request your absentee ballot using the link below.
EARLY VOTERS: Registered and eligible voters may vote at ANY early voting location located in the county of residence.
ELECTION DAY VOTERS: Your residence is located in a specific “precinct” or area within the county where you will vote. Your precinct number is on your Voter Registration certificate.
Make sure you have 1 of these 7 acceptable forms of ID with you when you vote in person:
- Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
- Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
- Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
- Texas Handgun License issued by DPS

In every federal election (and most nonfederal elections), each polling place will offer at least one type of accessible voting equipment or Direct Record Electronic (“DRE”) device. This equipment allows voters with disabilities to vote directly on the system or assist them in marking the paper ballot. Depending on the type of system, voters with disabilities may use headphones or other assistive devices to help them vote independently and secretly.
Tell the election official if you are a voter who needs help to vote. You do not have to provide proof of your disability. Voters are entitled to receive assistance if they:
- Cannot read or write; or
- Have a physical disability that prevents them from reading or marking the ballot; or
- Cannot speak English, or communicate only with sign language, and want assistance in communicating with election officials.
