The Military and Foreign Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) has created new mandates for the upcoming elections in Texas. According to the proclamation announced by the governor, applicants who do not qualify to submit an annual application for voting by mail can submit an application for a single election starting on the first day of the calendar year (January) and no later than the 11th day before election day. Voters with temporary disabilities may also submit a request for a ballot by mail for a specific election at any time during the year of the election, but no later than the closing of usual activities at the office of the early voting clerk or at 12 noon, whichever is later, on the 11th day before election day. If that day is Saturday, Sunday, or a statutory state or national holiday, then the last day to submit a request is the first normal business day before.
It is important to note that a completed vote-by-mail ballot MUST be returned to the Travis County Elections Office in the official envelope provided. Citizens who are temporarily out of the country will automatically receive ballots for all elections in which they are eligible to vote.
