Planning To Vote In The 2020 Presidential Primary? Here’s How To Register Before The February 3 Deadline

Hint: you’ll need a stamp.

On March 3, Texas will join 13 other states in voting in the 2020 presidential primaries, or “Super Tuesday”. 

To register to vote in the primary, you’ll need to track down a stamp and put your application in the mail by February 3 in order to vote in the presidential primary election on March 3.

February 3 is also the last day to change your address on your voter registration. 

Applications can also be dropped off in person at the county voter registrar’s office. In Harris County, that’s downtown at 1001 Preston Street. To find contact information for your county voter registrar’s office, click here.

You can find the application form online and fill it out, but it will not be complete yet. You need to print the application, sign the form, put it in a stamped envelope and mail it to the county.  

In Harris County, you’ll mail to this address:

Ann Harris Bennett
Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar
P.O. Box 3527
Houston, TX 77253-3527

You can also get the application form by calling 713-274-VOTE (8683). Assistance is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese or Chinese.

Not sure if you’re registered? You can check here by entering your name, county and date of birth. 

This year, Harris County residents will be able to take advantage of the new countywide polling place program and vote at any polling location on Election Day. Early voting begins on Tuesday, February 18.

In addition to voting on a presidential pick, Texas Democrats will also decide on a challenger against the state’s incumbent Republican Senator John Cornyn. 

Voters will also decide on Democratic and Republican challengers for U.S. House, state and county down-ballot races.
