Texas Voter Registration Surges Over Competitive U.S. Senate Race


(Austin, TX)  --  Today is the deadline to register to vote in next month's midterm elections.  State law requires Texas voters to be registered by October 9th in order to vote on November 6th.  

You can register to vote at your county Voter Registrar's Office.  For a list of registration offices by county, go to the Secretary of State's web site at sos-dot-texas-dot-gov.  

You must be a United States citizen at least 17 years and 10 months old on the date you apply.  Early voting starts October 22nd.

The Texas registered voter rolls now include a record 15-point-six-million people.  That's an increase of nearly 400-thousand since March, and one-point-six-million more since the 2014 midterm elections.  

The rapid rise in the number of registered voters comes as Texas has a closely watched U.S. Senate race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke.  

The deadline to register in time to vote in the November midterms is October 9th.
