#National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day & FAQs


Today is officially the First Day of Fall &&&&& most importantly its National Voter Registration Day. Today is so important to me ESPECIALLY with all of the political drama that permeates the news. It feels like this election has more meaning than previous years and there is a necessity for everyone to use they're right to vote and fully educate themselves about the political laws and structures.
I remember the last Presidential election how I had to take off half of the day as I had relocated to a different city for work and it was upmost importance that I exercised my right to vote. I remember driving the 2 hours- actually 4 hours round trip and I was so worried about the polling station and what forms of ID I would need and if I needed any special postcards etc. There are so many questions that first-time voters have and worry about asking and actually don't ask out of fear of looking silly and uninformed. And I can see where those unanswered questions can really deter well-meaning voters. 
So I have included several resources for Texas Voters with Frequently Asked Questions below

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Website Can I use to check my Voter Registration Status?           

I like to use the Texas Secretary of State Website as I personally wasn't too sure about using national websites and prefer to use State or County wide certified websites. I recommend the government website below:https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do

How old do you have to be to vote? 18 years old the day of voting

How do you register to vote?


What do you need to vote on the day of Voting? 

1 of the 7 forms of ID, Texas Drivers License, ID, Passport, Voter Registration Card, Military ID with photo, Handgun License

Is it Safe? Can I Vote by Mail? 

There is a risk of voting during a pandemic. If you are apart of the high-risk category see if you vote with a mail-in ballot. Watch the Video below about Vote by Mail

  

Where do I go? 

There are polling places throughout the County of Voting. Usually, it's a School Gym, Church, and other locations. By using the government website https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do it will actually walk you through the polling locations. If still unsure call your local County Clerk or County Elections Administrator as they will be happy to answer any questions you may have. If you don't see your county below use this link to search by county
For Example 
Tarrant County Elections Admin, Heider Garcia- County Email Address (817) 831-8683 
Dallas County Elections Admin, Toni Pippins-Poole County Email Address(469) 627-8683 
Harris County, Christopher G. Hollins-County Email Address(713) 755-6411
Wichita County Lori Bohannon-County Email Address (940) 766-8100
How do you find out who is on the Ballot? Contact County Clerk 
How late Can I register? Required to register 30 days before the Election so OCTOBER 5th is the deadline to register for the November 3rd Election. I REPEAT

OCTOBER 5TH

If you have any more questions please reach out to your local County Clerk or Elections Administrator. Don't delay as the time is now to take action and by voting, you are intentionally having a say in your future. As the real changes happen at the district and county levels. The local officials truly are the ones who have the major say as well as the big-ticket presidential pick. VOTE! Vote! VoTe!!!
THIS ELECTION YEAR IS SOOOOO IMPORTANT!! If you are not already registered to vote please REGISTER!! If you're already registered feel free to forward this post to your fellow Texans who have questions. As together we can all make a difference. DO NOT DOUBT WHAT WHAT A DIFFERENCE YOUR VOTE CAN MAKE!!!
Peace & Love 💕💕,
