In accordance with the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act, the State of Texas has adopted new administrative rules that make it easier for military and overseas voters to access the absentee voting process. Provisions now allow military service members temporarily residing outside their county of residence, as well as United States citizens residing overseas, to request and receive blank balloting materials via e-mail. It also includes the establishment of a ballot tracking system which allows military and overseas voters to determine the status of their ballot. For more information on this new program, voters may visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program at www.fvap.gov or call 1-800-438-VOTE (8683).
