Early Voting by Mail
Many Texans vote early. Texas enables residents to vote in the days and weeks before an election to make the voting process more convenient and accessible. There are two ways to vote early: by showing up in person during the prescribed early voting period or by voting by mail.
To vote early in person - Early voting in person will begin the 12th day before Election Day (if that’s a weekend, early voting starts on Monday) and ends the 4th day before Election Day. Early voting is held in the Mills County Community Center. All other voting rules and procedures apply – e.g., eligibility, identification.
You may vote early by mail if:
- You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day;
- You will be away from your county on Election Day and during early voting;
- Expected to give birth within three weeks before or after Election Day;
- You are sick or disabled (as defined in Texas Election Code 82.002(a) or
- You are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.
You can get a formal application for a ballot by mail from our office, or the Secretary of State’s Office or Download an application for a ballot by mail here. TRACK YOUR MAIL BALLOT HERE
We can accept an application in person directly from the individual voter only before early voting begins. You may also send in your application for a ballot by mail by regular mail; or by common or contract carrier.
