Voting by Mail

In Texas, in order to vote by mail, a voter must have a qualifying reason. A voter may vote early by mail if they:

  •  will be away from their county on Election Day and during early voting;
  •  are sick or disabled;
  •  are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
  •  are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.
  • Are expecting to give birth within three weeks before or after election day.
  •  

One of the grounds for voting by mail is disability. The Election Code defines “disability” to include “a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter’s health.” (Sec. 82.002). Voters who meet this definition and wish to vote a ballot by mail must submit an application for ballot by mail.

If you fax or e-mail your application to the early voting clerk, you must also mail the application so that the clerk receives it no later than the fourth business day after the day the clerk receives your faxed or emailed application. If you fax or e-mail your application, your application will be considered complete and timely as long as the original is received by the early voting clerk by the fourth business day after it was submitted by fax or e-mail.
