Important Dates: November 3, 2015 Election

November Uniform Election


Effective date of House Bill 1927 (2015), and first day to accept a regular application for ballot by mail for Tuesday, November 3, 2015 election.

NEW LAW: House Bill 1927 (2015), amended Section 84.007 to eliminate the “first date” that a regular application for ballot by mail may be submitted to the early voting clerk. Under the law, the application may be submitted “at any time in the year of the election for which a ballot is requested” as long as it is submitted by the deadline for that election. Therefore, as the effective date of House Bill 1927 is September 1, 2015, any regular application may be received on or after this date for the November 3, 2015 election.

Last day to apply for a ballot by mail (Application for a Ballot by Mail (ABBM) and Federal Post Card Application (FPCA)): Friday, October 23, 2015 (date received, NOT postmarked) (Sec. 84.007 (b) & (c)).

NEW LAW: Section 84.007, as amended by House Bill 1927 (2015), changed the deadline for applications for ballots by mail. Applications for ballot by mail must be received by the early voting clerk on the eleventh day before election day, and amended the deadline for an FPCA to be the same as an ABBM.

Last day to register to vote: Monday, October 5, 2015 . To verify if you are a registered voter click here.
