COVID-19 and Patient Voting
Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:
You may vote by mail if you meet on of Texas' requirements for doing so, such as being over the age of 65 or being sick or disabled. More information on this process and the necessary documentation can be found here. The Election Code defines “disability” to include “a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter's health.” (Sec. 82.002). If you believe that you meet this definition, they can submit an application for ballot by mail.
