Lubbock-Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson launched her 2024 voter education tour this morning at the Elections Office Warehouse in Lubbock. The tour is designed to make sure Texans know where to go for official voting information, including vote-by-mail requirements and the acceptable forms of photo ID voters can present at the polls.

“My goal is to make sure every qualified Texan who wants to vote has all the information they need to cast a ballot,” Secretary Nelson said.

Secretary Nelson and elections officials across Texas have been preparing for the 2024 elections, and they are alerting voters to requirements that have changed since the last presidential election.

For example, Texans voting by mail must provide one of the following numbers on their mail-in ballot application and the carrier envelope of their cast ballot:

  • Texas Driver License
  • Texas Personal Identification Card
  • Election Identification Certificate
  • OR the last 4 digits of their Social Security number

Texans who have not been issued one of these numbers must indicate so by checking the appropriate box on the application for ballot by mail or carrier envelope.

Texans are eligible to vote by mail if they are age 65 or older, sick or disabled, expect to give birth within three weeks of Election Day, or out of their county of registration through both the early voting period and Election Day.
