April 1 is the deadline for eligible voters to register to vote in May 1 elections.
“Exercising your right to vote and making your voice heard is a fundamental part of our democracy,” said Texas Secretary of State Ruth R. Hughs. “I encourage all eligible Texans who have not already done so to register to vote by April 1st so that they can actively participate in shaping the future of Texas.”
Texans who aren’t sure if they are registered to vote or not can check their registration status on the Texas Secretary of State’s website on the “Am I Registered?” page.
Poeple who have moved to a new address within the same county or have changed their name, you can also update their information online.
Eligible Texans who are not already registered to vote may complete and print a voter registration application here, or request an application from their county elections administrator. In Hopkins County, Tax Collector/Assessor Debbie Pogue Mitchell at (903) 438-4063 or check out the Voter Information page on the county website for more voter and election information: http://www.hopkinscountytx.org/page/hopkins.
Once completed, eligible Texas voters should submit the application to the county voter registrar in their county of residence. Completed voter registration applications must be postmarked by April 1st in order to be accepted.
