Several organizations will celebrate National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 24, to encourage Americans to exercise their right to vote. In Texas, voters may download an application online at votetexas.gov that may be filled out, printed and mailed to your county’s voter registrar. Voter registration applications are also available at Richardson City Hall in the City Secretary's Office.
Nearly 50 Department of Public Safety driver license offices will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays through Nov. 2 to offer free Election Identification Certificates (EIC), an approved form of identification for those without a photo ID. The Nov. 5 election will be the first in Texas to require voters statewide to show a photo ID at the polls.
EIC applicants must present proof of citizenship and identity. They may also obtain an EIC during regular license office hours.
Nearby offices offering Saturday registration hours include:
- Garland Mega Center, 4445-A Saturn Rd.
- Plano Office, 2109 W. Parker Rd., #224
