AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Tuesday marks the last day to register to vote in Texas for the November 6, 2018 midterm elections.

To be eligible to register to vote in Texas, you must be a United States citizen, submit the application in the county you reside, be at least 18 years old on the day of the election, and not be a convicted felon. (You may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation and parole.)

You can register in person at the voter registrar's office in each county:

You can also register to vote by mail. Your application must be postmarked by October 9. Texas does NOT allow online voter registration, although there are sites that will help you fill out and print an application to be mailed.

You can check your registration status online with the Texas Secretary of State's office. You'll need either your Texas driver's license number, your Voter Unique Identifier (VUID), or your first and last name, zip code, and your date of birth.

Early voting for the November 6 election begins on October 22 and runs through November 2.
