Voter Registration Deadline - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Voter Registration Deadline

Monday is the last day Texans can register to vote in next month’s primary elections.

The deadline also applies to Texas Voter Registration updates, such as changing addresses to register to vote.  Texans can go online and download a mail-in application. 

Remember, Texans already registered to vote will need one of seven forms of identification.  Critics of that law are worried about its impact.

Jim Harrington, Texas Civil Rights Director said, “Unfortunately it always cuts against poor people, elderly and minority community and I’m sure that’s the intent behind this law is to slow down the political changes going on in Texas.”

Voter without a valid identification can get an Election Identification Certificate.  It’s free at your local DPS office.

The Democratic and Republican Primaries are March 4th.
