Voter Registration List to be Purged
Hood County sends out voter registration cards every two years (odd numbered years), if your cards is returned to our office the voter is put on 'suspense' status and sent a notice that he or she needs to update their address. If voter does not respond and does not vote in the next two federal elections cycles then the registration is cancelled. Voters placed on the suspense list on or before October 11, 2016, will be eligible to be cancelled this year. On December 4, 2018 Hood County purged these voters from the rolls. Visit the Texas Secretary of State's website (English or Spanish) to confirm registration.
If you reside in Hood County and are not on the voter registration rolls, you must fill out a voter registration application and mail it to us or drop it off at our office. An individual cannot register online in the State of Texas!
