***Important Change to Delivery of Marked Ballot***
   On July 27, 2020, the Governor issued a proclamation suspending the portion of Section 86.006(a-1) that limits the ability of the voter to hand-deliver their marked ballot "only while the polls are open on election day." 
   This suspension ALLOWS a voter to hand-deliver their marked ballot to the Early Voting Clerk's Office any time after the voter receives their ballot until 7:00pm on Election Day. 
   ONLY the voter who received the ballot may deliver their own ballot in person.    Photo ID and signature is required to surrender a marked ballot. 
   For questions related to absentee voting by mail, or any other election-related questions, please contact us at (979) 244-7680.
