- Fill out a new voter registration application form and check the “change” box
- When you apply for or change your Texas driver’s license, change your voter information at the same time

The changes you make will be forwarded to the county voter registrar for processing. You will be mailed a new certificate with your new address and be able to vote in your new precinct 30 days after you submitted your change. If you miss the 30-day deadline to change information on your voter registration certificate, you may vote in your former precinct as long as you still reside in the political subdivision conducting the election.
