Only specific reasons entitle a registered voter to vote early by mail (no longer called absentee voting).
You may vote early by mail if:
• You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day;
• You are sick or disabled (as defined in Texas Election Code 82.002(a));
• You expect to give birth within three weeks before or after Election Day;
• You are out of your county on Election Day and during early voting hours;
• You are confined in jail or Involuntary Civil Commitment, but eligible to vote.
Voters who are absent from the county or confined in jail/civilly committed may only apply for one election and its resulting runoff.
