Voting and Elections

Absentee Voting

Deadline to submit ballot by mail application in Texas for the 2023 fall election: October 27, 2023 (note that your application must be RECEIVED in the office by this date, so planning to send it 2 weeks prior to this deadline is probably safe). 

The deadline for the voting clerk to receive completed ballots mailed within the United States from non-military and military voters who submitted an Application for Ballot by Mail is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, if the carrier envelope has a postmark showing it was in the mail by 7:00 p.m. November 7, 2023.


Things to consider when deciding where to vote:

  • If you have financial aid that requires Texas residency, consider that and talk to the financial aid office before registering to vote in another state you consider home. 
  • Where do you want to weigh in on local issues, here in Travis County or in your home state or county?
  • Absentee voting can be more complex and might take more time, so consider the extra steps required to vote absentee.
