  • **********You have to reapply every year for an annual ballot***********

    Our office is no longer allowed (per the legislature) to mail applications without consent from the voter. EACH voter must request an application themselves or download from below. 

    You may vote early by mail if:

    • You will be away from your county on Election Day and during early voting;
    • You are sick or disabled;
    • You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
    • You are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.

    You can get a formal application for a ballot by mail from:

                          BBM App 5-15e.pdf       BBM App 5-15s.pdf

                       Jodi Duck

                       PO Box 1069

                       Big Spring, Texas 79721


    If you are voting early because of expected absence, you may apply in person for a ballot by mail before the early “voting in person” period begins (usually the 17th day before the election).


    You can write your own application for a ballot by mail, as long as it contains:

    • Your signature, or a witness’ signature if you cannot sign;
    • Your name and the address at which you are registered to vote;
    • The address to which the ballot is to be mailed;
    • The election date and the election for which you are requesting a ballot (for a primary election, you must state the political party’s primary in which you want to vote); and
    • A reason why you are eligible to vote early by mail. To be eligible to vote early because you expect to be out of the county, your application must state the out-of-county address where you want your ballot mailed.
    • Include Drivers License number and/or last four of Social Security Number

     

    It is important to add an email address or phone number so that we may contact you if there is an error that needs correction.  The State Law allows for corrections and will have a cure time deadline.




    Your ballot by mail application must be MAILED to the Early Voting Clerk in the county where you are registered to vote. Applications must be received (not postmarked) by last day of the application period. All applications to vote by mail must be received by the early voting clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. Applications to vote by mail must be submitted by mail, common or contract carrier, or fax. The original application MUST be received in four days from fax date.

    Mail ballots can only be hand-delivered by the Voter and only on Election Day with a proper ID to the Early Voting Clerk at the Courthouse (not the poll locations).




    You may send in your application for a ballot by mail by:

    • Regular mail;
    • Common or contract carrier; or
    • Fax


    The Early Voting Clerk must receive your marked ballot by 7 p.m. on Election Day or by the 5th day after Election Day if your ballot is submitted from outside the United States.
