When do I need to reregister to vote, or to update my voter registration in the state of Texas?

In the state of Texas, if you move to a new address within the same county, you simply need to change your address online through the Texas Secretary of State office at, or by notifying your county Voter Registrar’s office in writing. You will receive a new certificate of registration by mail, and will be able to vote in your new precinct 30 days after you submit your change of address. However, if you do not meet this deadline, you will still be able to vote in your former precinct, so long as you are still living within the same political subdivision. On the other hand, if you move to a new county in Texas, you must reregister to vote, and you will become eligible to vote 30 days after you have submitted your new registration form. However, you may be eligible to vote a limited ballot in some situations prior to your new voter registration becoming effective.
