Voter Registration Information
Did you know that Texas was the first State to vote from space?

Now that I have your attention, the Tax Assessor/Collector serves as Voter Registrar for Galveston County. One of my responsibilities is to encourage voter registration which we do in a variety of ways including deputizing volunteer registrars and providing programs on voter registration.

Galveston County’s Voter Registration Department is located in the Galveston office but applications are available in each of our offices as well as online (see below). Our office supports all elections held in Galveston County through the provision of poll books and telephone support for election workers. In addition, Volunteer Deputy Registrar training and programs on voter registration, voter participation, and citizenship are available upon request.

In order to register to vote in Texas, a person must be a US citizen, a resident of the county, at least 17 years and 10 months of age, not be a convicted felon (unless sentence, including probation or parole has been completed), and not have been declared mentally disabled.

Below you will find an on-line application. Please print the application and complete it in accordance with the instructions below:
