In order to participate and vote in the Texas primary elections, people need to register by 11:59 p.m. today.

During election voting periods there are booths on campus where anyone can cast a vote, but voters must be registered to vote in Austin.

For those who have not already registered to vote there are a couple of options to get registered today.

Students can participate in the “Super Last Minute Voter Registration Extravaganza.” The event is being held on the West Mall throughout the day and then will move to Gregory Plaza in the evening, where they will remain until midnight.

In order to register, people will need a state-approved photo identification card. Different types include a driver’s license, passport or concealed handgun license. Student ID cards are not accepted for voter registration.

Once there, a deputy voter registrar will help people fill out the form. Anyone who has changed addresses since they last registered must register again with their new address.
