Texas Secretary of State Carlos Cascos is reminding local residents Monday, February 1 is the deadline to register to vote in the upcoming March 1 Primary Election. Federal and state-level offices, as well as several hotly contested local races, are shaping the primary this year. Most of the races will be decided on March 1 since winners will run unopposed in the November General Election because no candidate from the Democratic Party on the ballot.

Texas can register to vote in several ways including downloading a mail-in application at All applications must be postmarked February 1 or earlier to meet the deadline. Eligible voters may also apply in person at their county voter registrar's office. Photo ID is currently required for voting in person.
