Latest Secretary of State Advisory Regarding Elections During COVID-19 Pandemic

NOTICE: In Election Advisory N0. 2020-14 the Texas Secretary of State describes voting procedures authorized under Texas election code, as detailed below:

Voting by Mail In Texas, in order to vote by mail, a voter must have a qualifying reason. A voter may vote early by mail if they:

  • will be away from their county on Election Day and during early voting
  • are sick or disabled
  • are 65 years of age or older on Election Day
  • are confined in jail, but eligible to vote

One of the grounds for voting by mail is disability. The Election Code defines “disability” to include “a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter's health.” (Sec. 82.002). Voters who meet this definition and wish to vote a ballot by mail must submit an application for ballot by mail.

The Travis County Clerk maintains the county's records, administers elections, and oversees legal documentation (such as property deeds, marriage licenses and assumed name certificates).
