Vote by Mail Application


What is going on with Vote by Mail applications?

● A provision of the new GOP voter suppression law, Senate Bill 1, requires that voters provide their full Texas Driver's license number or the last four digits of their social security number.

● However, many applications have been rejected for missing identification information.

What can be done to prevent an application from being rejected?

● Make sure that your VBM application has both your Texas driver's license number and the last four digits of your social security number.

● Make sure that you provide both your email address and your phone number on the application so that the elections office can contact you if there are any issues with your application.

Don’t Forget the Final Step!

● The new voter suppression law also requires that you put these numbers on the carrier envelope that will contain your mail ballot. Your mail ballot can be rejected if it does not contain these numbers.

● Make sure that you fill out the space on the carrier envelope for your mail ballot with the same numbers you put on your mail ballot application.
