Step 3: Apply for a ballot to be mailed to you
Due Date: October 23, 2020
(If you want to hand in your application, the deadline is October 12, 2020 by 4:30pm.)
After October 14th, LWV-Dallas recommends that you do not apply for a ballot by mail. Please vote in person (curbside is available), because the timeline is too tight to guarantee.
First: Obtain an “Application to Request a Ballot Form” and a postage stamp.
You may either print the Application for Ballot by Mail - English
to use with your own envelope or ask ask online for an ABBM
with moisten and seal tabs to be mailed to you. You will also need a 55¢ postage stamp.
Second: Complete and sign the application.
You must sign the application EXACTLY how you plan to sign your ballot. If the signatures don't match between the application and ballot, your ballot will be disqualified by the election department's signature board.
Third: Submit the application
TIP: Voters 65 years and older or voters with a disability need to apply each year; voters out of town or confined to jail must apply for each election separately. If you would like to vote in the Democratic Party's Primary or Republican Party's Primary, you will need to mark which one.
to the Early Voting (EV) Clerk's office.
