If you vote by mail due to absence from the county, your ballot must be mailed from an out of county address. Additional Ballot by Mail information is available.
If you moved within the county and did not change your address prior to the 30 day deadline date, you must vote at your old precinct. In this situation, it may be advantageous for you to vote early at the Early Voting location most convenient to you.

Yes, however, your voting options will be different depending on your circumstance. If you are currently registered in Rockwall County, you will have to vote at your previous precinct. If you are currently registered in another Texas county, you will have to vote a limited ballot at the main Early Voting location in Rockwall during the Early Voting time period. If you are not registered in Texas, you can vote a provisional ballot. The Early Voting ballot board will review your affidavit and make a decision on whether or not to count your 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. 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. If they are not eligible to vote, it will register them as a voter and they will be ready for the next election.
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.
Yes, you can vote in this county on a Limited Ballot at the main Early Voting polling location which is located at 915 Whitmore Dr., STE D. Rockwall, Texas 75087 and only during the Early Voting period.
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.
