Monday, February 3, is the last date for Texans to register to participate in the March primaries known as Super Tuesday.

It is also the last chance to make changes to your voter registration.

The March 3 contests will determine which candidates represent each party in the November election.

Texas is one of 14 states that hold primaries on Super Tuesday. Voters will be weighing in on candidate choices for local elections.

You can register in person at your county Voter Registrar’s office. (In most Texas counties, the Tax Assessor-Collector is also the Voter Registrar. In some counties, the County Clerk or Elections Administrator registers voters.)

Or you can register by mail by obtaining an application from your county Voter Registrar’s office.

You may fill out a voter registration application online, print it, sign it, and mail it to the voter registrar in your county.

You are not registered until you have filled out the online application, printed it, signed it, and mailed it to your local County Voter Registrar.

The deadline is Feb 3 by 5 p.m.

You are eligible to register to vote if:

  • You are a United States citizen;
  • You are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
  • You are at least 17 years and 10 months old, and you are 18 years of age on Election Day.
  • You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole); and
  • You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.

If you're unsure whether you're registered, you can check via the Texas Secretary of State's Am I Registered site.
