Vote By Mail
What You Need to Know About Voting By Mail
If you are a Collin County registered voter, you can vote by mail if:
- You expect to be absent from the County during both the early voting period and election day;
- You have a disability;
- You are 65 years of age or older; or
- You are confined in jail and not finally convicted of a felony.
NOTE: Fear of COVID-19 alone does not qualify as a disability under state law. The decision to apply to vote by mail because of a disability or physical condition is your own (subject to a correct understanding of the law) based on your current health conditions and health history.
We strongly recommend that you APPLY ASAP if you think you may want to vote by mail this November. Applying now will provide enough time for your application to be processed and for you to receive and return your ballot in time to have it count. Please do not wait to apply!
Applying for a mail in ballot is easy using this link: https://reg.vote/tdvbm.html
- When you submit the application form, you will be given two options:
- Have the application mailed to you with a pre-addressed envelope that you then return by mail.
- Download and print the application. Complete it/mail it to:
Early Voting Clerk
2010 Redbud Blvd, Suite 102
McKinney, TX 75069
Note: Sign your application to vote by mail the same way you will sign your ballot. Your signature on your vote-by-mail application MUST MATCH the signature on your ballot envelope for your vote to count.
If you apply to vote by mail, the deadline for your application to be received by the Elections Department is October 23, 2020. BUT we strongly recommend you not wait until then to apply. If you wait until the deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot, there is a good chance that you will not be able to mail your ballot back in time for it to count.
Returning your Vote-By-Mail Ballot
After you have submitted a valid application to vote by mail, you will receive a mail-in ballot in the mail, when they are sent out (e.g. the end of September for the upcoming election), pursuant to the application, unless the Collin Elections Department contacts you directly.
You can return your completed mail-in ballot two ways:
- Simply mail it back (with postage) to the Collin County Elections Department, 2010 Redbud Blvd, Suite 102, McKinney, TX 75069, or
- Drop it off in person at the Collin County Elections office during office hours (8:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday). The voter must personally deliver the ballot, go inside, sign a form, and show their ID.
* Only one first-class stamp is required on when mailing in your ballot.
** Only one ballot may be put in an envelope. Example: if you put your ballot and your spouse’s in the same envelope, it is likely that one or both of the ballots will not count.
*** Place your ballot in the return envelope, seal it, and THEN sign the envelope. If you sign the envelope and then seal it, you will obscure your signature and make it more difficult for elections officials to validate and count your ballot.
We strongly recommend you fill out and send in your ballot as soon as you receive it.
NOTE: Mail-in ballots must be received by 5:00 p.m. November 4 in order to count. We recommend mail-in ballots be mailed at least 10 days prior to the November 3 election.
The Collin Elections Department has an email address for questions about voting by mail. It is email@example.com
