AUSTIN, TX – Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade today announced a new name and URL address for Texas voters’ online voter registration and election information resource. The new name of the website is VoteTexas.gov and the URL is now www.votetexas.gov.
“Texas voters will continue to find all of the information they need to register to vote and how to cast their ballot during early voting or on Election Day, at VoteTexas.gov,” said Secretary of State Hope Andrade. The new name and web address will be much easier to remember and more intuitive for users.”
VoteTexas.gov is a comprehensive online resource available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist Texas voters in every step of the registration and voting processes.
“If you’re eligible to vote, but not yet registered, I urge you to visit VoteTexas.gov to find out how to register. If you’re already a registered voter, please check the site regularly for updates on the 2012 election cycle to ensure you have all the information necessary to vote, and make your mark on Texas,” said Secretary Andrade.
At VoteTexas.gov, Texans will learn how to register to vote, track important deadlines during every election cycle, and refresh their memory regarding what documentation is necessary when going to vote. The site also includes important functions allowing Texans to find out if they are already registered to vote, where to find their polling place and instructions on how to cast a ballot.
Previously, the website was titled votexas, with the URL, www.votexas.org. The previous URL will remain live for users who have that web address bookmarked or who choose to continue using it.
