Your Vote, Your Voice
Voting is without a doubt one of most important responsibilities we have as Texans.
Voting is an important tool for expressing our values and influencing policies. Elections and voting are opportunities for citizens to come together to shape the future of our communities, our state, and our country.
If you aren’t currently registered or have never voted, let’s change that! Here are some helpful tips and resources:
If you are a United States citizen, and 17 years 10 months old you can and should register to vote. Don’t take your right to vote for granted. Hundreds of thousands of people fought hard for this right – exercise it.

Registering to vote means your name will be added to an official list of eligible voters. If you are an eligible citizen you must be registered before you can vote on election day. You can find out if you are currently registered here: teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do.
