[ARCHIVED] Voter Registration Deadline Event

Hand droping a ballot into a voting box

Anyone wishing to participate in the upcoming election on November 3rd, 2020, must be registered to vote. The deadline for registration is by midnight, Monday, October 5, 2020. All registration forms must be received by the Dallas County Elections Department (DCED) for any Dallas County resident wishing to register by this deadline.

In order to receive as many registrations as possible before the midnight deadline, the DCED has teamed up with the Dallas Mavericks, Univision, and the Dallas Morning News to host two (2) mobile events for collecting registration forms. Applicants can update their information and register without ever having to leave their vehicle. You can complete a registration form at one of the drive-thru events, fill out and print the form at home from the votetexas.gov website, or you can also pick up a blank registration form from the HP Library to take with you.
