There are certain requirements all citizens must meet before they can vote in Texas. Follow the link below to see how to meet these requirements.


Teresa Stern, VAIL Staff Member, had this to say about her first voting experience: “Voting can be very scary when it’s your first time and if you also have a disability. The first time I voted, I didn’t know what to do. My father told me who to vote for. He told me not to discuss with anyone who I am voting for. That was many votes ago, and after that first time, I always planned ahead so I would feel confident voting. Since that first time, I have always decided for myself who I want to vote for. I am a registered Voter; I listen to the candidates and vote for the one who most represents the things I believe in; and I always check with my voting place to see if anything has changed to be sure they will have the accommodations I will need to vote. Then I am ready to vote!”
