Actually, a better question is: Have you registered to vote?Oct. 6 is the deadline for voters to register in Texas. If you haven’t registered and you have no clue how to do it, don’t panic!
To vote you need to be a U.S. citizen, a resident of El Paso County and 18 years old. You can’t be a convicted felon (unless your sentence is completed) or declared mentally incapacitated by a court.If you meet all these requirements you’ll next need to determine if you’re already registered or not. Visit the Texas Secretary of State Web site and follow the super easier directions.
If you’re registered, great! If you’re not, print out the Texas Voter Registration Application form (.pdf) or pick up a form at a post office, library, or at one of the Texas Department of Public Safety or Texas Department of Human Services offices.Fill out the form and mail it to this address:
