Get registered and vote
Are you registered to vote?
If not, you have until Oct. 11 to get registered. You can obtain a registration form by calling Young County Voter Registrar Lauren Sullivan at 940-549-5132 or by dropping by the office, located in the northeast corner of the basement of the county courthouse. You should also be able to get a copy at the library or the DMV office.
You can also download the form from votetexas.gov/voting and either mail or deliver it to the Young County Voter Registrar’s office. Any other questions you have about registering and voting can also be answered at the above link.
You can also call 1-800-252-VOTE (1-800-252-8683). If you are 17 but will turn 18 before Nov. 8, 2016, you may register to vote.
You do NOT need a photo ID in order to vote! If you are registered to vote, you can use:
• Valid voter registration certificate
• Certified birth certificate (must be an original)
• Copy of or original current utility bill
• Copy of or original bank statement
• Copy of or original government check
• Copy of or original paycheck
• Copy of or original government document with your name and an address (original required if it contains a photograph)
If you do not have a photo ID but do have your paper Voter ID card, that is the handiest and quickest document for the poll worker to pull up the information in the database so you can be allowed to vote quickly and ensure everyone in line gets to vote and wait times are minimized.
If you are not sure you are registered, you can go online to the Texas Secretary of State Website and follow the links to “Am I registered?” or go to votetexas.gov/voting/ and follow the links on registration, or you can go to https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov.
You can also call 1-800-252-8683, or you can call the Young County Voter Registrar at 940-549-5132 to check the status of your voter registration.
It’s the duty of every adult citizen to vote.
