I live in Uvalde County, but I am registered to vote in another Texas county. Can I vote in Uvalde County?
Yes, if you a have missed the voter registration deadline, you can vote in Uvalde County on a Limited Ballot at the main Early Voting polling location which is the Willie De Leon Civic Center – Cactus Room, 300 E. Main St., Uvalde, TX 78801 and only during the Early Voting period. Please contact our office regarding applying for a limited ballot.
What is a limited ballot?
A limited ballot is used when someone is currently registered to vote in another Texas county but has moved to another county. A person is allowed to vote in their new county, but is limited to vote only on the candidates/issues that would have also been on their previous county’s ballot. This will cancel your registration in the previous county and registers you in the current county. A limited ballot may only be voted on at the main Early Voting location and during the Early Voting period.
Can I bring my sample ballot to the polls?
Yes, you can bring any material with you, but please remember to take it with you when you leave the voting location.
What is a provisional ballot?
A provisional ballot is used when a person presents themselves for voting but due to circumstances, cannot be quickly verified as a qualified voter or cannot present an acceptable form of identification but does possess one. It allows the person to vote and gives the Voter Registration office time after the election to verify if the person is eligible to vote or allow the voter to present acceptable identification to the Voter Registration office. If they are not eligible to vote, it will register them as a voter, and they will be ready for the next election.
Will my vote count if I vote a provisional ballot?
That will be determined by the Early Voting Ballot Board (EVBB). After the election, the information from the Provisional Voter Affidavit will be looked up by the Voter Registration Office. Depending on 1) the reason you voted by provisional ballot and 2) the outcome of the research by the Voter Registration office, the EVBB will make the decision to count the vote or not. Regardless of the outcome, you will be notified by mail.
