Annual Application for Ballot by Mail (Annual ABBM) –

If you are a voter that is over 65 years of age or disabled, you qualify for requesting an Annual ABBM for the upcoming elections in 2015. An Annual ABBM is valid from the time the early voting clerk receives it until the end of the calendar year or until the voter submits a change in registration information.

The Annual ABBM entitles a voter to receive ballots only for those elections where the county clerk serves as the early voting clerk, either because the county clerk is designated as the early voting clerk by law or through a joint election agreement or contract for election services. An Annual ABBM must be received at least 9 days before the first election in which the voter seeks to request a ballot by mail.

When filling out the application, the applicant must choose the check box designating an Annual Ballot by Mail in order to receive ballots for qualified elections. Annual Ballot by Mail

» NEW IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR VOTING:
In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) creating a new requirement for voters to show photo identification when voting in person. While pending review within the judicial system, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, which effectively ended all pending litigation. As a result, voters are now required to present an approved form of photo identification in order to vote in all Texas Elections.

Here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:

This requirement is effective immediately.

  1. Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  2. Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
  3. Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  4. Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
  5. United States military identification card containing the persons photograph
  6. United States citizenship certificate containing the persons photograph
  7. United States passport

    With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 60 days before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place.
