A Texas voter registration form enables Texans to register to vote for their preferred candidate in any upcoming elections. Each completed form must be submitted by mail to a local County Registration Office. The form can be filled in online using the Secretary of State website and subsequently printed with the requisite information automatically placed in the appropriate spaces of the form. The form can also be downloaded on this webpage and completed using the below instructions. Eligible voters are those who are at least seventeen (17) years and ten (10) months old at the time of registration and at least eighteen (18) years of age by the election day. Convicted felons are prohibited from registration unless legal punishment has been served or a pardon has been granted. Registration is prohibited to those who have been ruled as mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated by court judgement.
