*NEW* DUE TO CONCERNS ABOUT THE CURRENT SITUATION REGARDING COVID-19 THE FOLLOWING MEASURES ARE BEING TAKEN BY THE ELECTIONS DEPARTMENT: Our staff will limit exposure to the public “social distancing” the Elections Department will continue to process new voter registration applications and conduct the normal day to day operations. As of today (April 1st 2020) all elections scheduled to begin on April 20th have been postponed to November. As of today the Runoff Election scheduled for May has been postponed by the Governor to July 14th.

The Office of Attorney General is providing the attached updated guidance concerning the availability of ballots by mail based on “disability” as that term is defined in the Texas Election Code. The guidance re-confirms that “a ballot by mail is not available based purely on lack of immunity to COVID-19 or based on a desire to engage in social distancing to avoid exposure to the virus.” The guidance also notes that “to the extent third parties advise voters to apply for a ballot by mail for reasons not authorized by the Election Code, including fear of contracting COVID-19 without an accompanying qualifying disability, such activity could subject those third parties to criminal sanctions imposed by the Texas Election Code.”
