Extra Postage Required On Mansfield Mail-In Ballots

Heads up Mansfield, TX voters, here’s some important news for any Mansfield resident voting by mail. In order to fit all races and propositions on the ballot, the City of Mansfield ballot will consist of two pages instead of one. This means to return your ballot, postage will be $0.70 versus $0.55. 

You may only vote by mail in Texas if 1) you are age 65 and older; 2) you have a disability; 3) you are expected to be out of the county of your residence or the country; and 4) you are in jail. An application for a ballot by mail is available online at https://www.sos.texas.gov/elections/voter/reqabbm.shtml.

Print and complete the form, then mail it to the early voting clerk in the county where you vote. The LAST day to apply for a mail in ballot is Friday, October 23, 2020. (Received, not Postmarked)

Some county early voting clerks are even offering an opportunity to email early voting applications to the clerk. Mansfield is located in three counties so residents here will need to contact the election office in the county where they reside.

Johnson County: https://www.johnsoncountytx.org/departments/elections-office

Ellis County: https://www.co.ellis.tx.us/312/Elections

Do not mail, fax, or email completed applications for Ballot by Mail to the Secretary of State Office. All applications received by this office will be rejected.
