  • Ways to Register

    To register to vote in Texas, simply complete a voter registration application and return it to your county election office at least 30 days before the upcoming election date.  To complete an application, you may:

    1. Complete an application using the link below. Simply fill in the required information, print, sign and mail directly to your county election office.
    2. Contact or visit your local Colorado County Election's Office to complete the voter registration process.
    3. Alternative Methods to Register:
      •  In-County Updates via Texas Online: If a voter has moved within the same county, the voter may update their address online at www.Texas.gov. Voters that are active or in suspense can update their name and/or residence address through this secure website. (See Link Above)
      • Printed Voter Registration Applications: If a voter has access to a printer, the voter can
        use the SOS Informal Online Application to complete a voter registration application. This
        application can be printed and mailed to the applicable county voter registrar. When the voter
        selects their county of residence, it will preprint the county voter registrar’s address on the
        form so that when the voter mails it, they send it directly to their county voter registrar.
      • Postage-Paid Voter Registration Applications: If a voter does not have access to a printer,
        the voter can request that a blank postage-paid voter registration application be mailed directly
        to the voter. The voter can fill out the request form on the SOS website. Counties can also
        mail blank applications to voters upon request.
      •  Revisions to Voter Registration Certificate: If a voter has their current voter registration
        certificate, they may make any necessary corrections or updates to the certificate, sign it and
        return it to the voter registrar.
      • Register2Vote.org: This is a third-party website that provides a remote printing option for voters. Voters can complete a form online and have a pre-filled application sent to them for completion. The voter must complete the form, sign it, and mail it in the included postage-paid envelope. This form is sent directly to the county voter registrar.

    You are eligible to register to vote if:

    • You are a United States citizen;
    • You are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
    • You are at least 17 years and 10 months old, and you are 18 years of age on
      Election Day.
    • You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole); and
    • You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
