Harvey Flood Mailbox

  • If you had one of the accepted photo IDs, but no longer have it, you may vote with one of the alternative forms of ID. You will sign the affidavit and vote a regular ballot.

  • If you are temporarily staying in a county where you are not registered to vote, you may submit an application for ballot by mail to your county's election office. It must be received no later than October 27, 2017. You will need to provide a mailing address which is outside of your home Texas county.

  • You may choose to register to vote in the county where you are now residing if you intend to stay in the new county. The deadline to register is October 10, 2017.

  • You may vote a "limited ballot" during early voting in the county where you are currently residing. Limited ballot voting is only available at the main early voting location in the county. The limited ballot will include the constitutional amendment election. Voting a limited ballot in the new county has the effect of registering the voter in the new county.

  • As a last resort, if you no longer have any form of acceptable ID, you may vote a provisional ballot. You have six days to go to your county registrar's office and complete affidavit swearing to the natural disaster.
