Not much time remains to register to vote in the 2012 November 6th General Election.

The deadline to register to vote in Texas in the General Election is October 9th, and there are a number of ways to complete your registration.

In order to register, a few guidelines must be met. You must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of the county, be at least 18 years old, not a convicted felon, and not declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law. Citizens are allowed to register to vote at 17 years and 10 months of age.

Some felons may be eligible to vote if they have completed their sentence, probation and parole.
