There are numerous lists life puts us on; but the Voter
Registration list represents more than our name- it is an act of
patriotism, an individual investment. John Quincy Adams said,
“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, you will
cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”
We are proud to offer this service and put you on
the list, because, “Everyone
Counts in Travis County!”

A Provisional Ballot is used when someone is not listed on the voter registration roll. A special process outlined in federal legislation is used to review the eligibility of these ballots. If you arrive at a polling location on election day and your registration status cannot be verified, you may request a provisional ballot at that time.Back to top
