The most important thing we can do is exercise the right to vote that we won with the Texas Annexation Right to Vote Act.

Step One: Check to see if you are registered to vote.

Go to to search their database to see if you are already registered.  You can look yourself up by three different methods: TX driver's license number (if submitted at the time of registration), your Voter Unique Identifier (on your voter registration card), or your first and last name.

Step Two: If not already registered to vote, REGISTER!

If you are NOT registered, get an application (online or at many different locations) and be sure to submit it at least 30 days before the election to be held on November 6th.  According to the Texas Secretary of State, the last day to register to vote is Tuesday, October 9th (the first business day after Columbus Day).  It will need to be mailed in, so don't delay and get it completed as soon as possible!

Step Three: Get your friends and neighbors registered!

Many new people have moved in and apartment complexes have gone up since our original fight to gain the right to vote.  That means that there are many of our neighbors who do not know about the threat of annexation or the vote we won to have a voice in the process.  We need to make sure we help keep them informed about the importance of registering to vote and voting NO on the November 6th proposition for annexation.  Post updates on your neighborhood Facebook or Nextdoor pages, see if your HOA can send out a newsletter or email, and help connect them to the HAA website for all of the details and updates.

Step Four: Vote in the November 6th elections!

Early voting will begin on October 22nd and ends on November 2nd.  Polling locations will be published by the Texas Secretary of State a few days before early voting begins and will be listed when you check your registration online.  For a list of official FAQs on the voting process, see the website.

Ballot by Mail

To be eligible to vote early by mail in Texas, you must be one of the following: 65 years or older, disabled, out of the country during the early voting period and election day, or confined in jail.  If this applies to you, please go to for detailed instructions and the application.
