Vice President-Elect Harris:

We did it, Joe.

George W. Bush:

"I just talked to the President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden. I extended my warm congratulations and thanked him for the patriotic message he delivered last night. I also called Kamala Harris to congratulate her on her historic election to the vice presidency. Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who has won his opportunity to lead and unify our country. The President-elect reiterated that while he ran as a Democrat, he will govern for all Americans".

NATO Ambassador and  former Texas Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison: “We are going to work in a transition for a new administration coming in,” she said ahead of a NATO ministerial meeting. “We are going to make sure it’s smooth. That’s what we have in democracies, and that’s what we are going to produce.”

Dawn: It's morning in America.

The Lincoln Project: "In 1984 Ronald Reagan’s campaign launched an iconic and memorable political ad called “Morning in America.” ‘Morning’ highlighted the positive impact of a first term Reagan presidency and presented an optimistic vision of an America that was prosperous and peaceful. Under Donald Trump, we instead face “Mourning in America.”

"Trump Kills Texas"

Are you, like 25% of the people in Van Zandt County, 60+ years old?  

"It affects virtually nobody," Trump says of the coronavirus, which has now killed 200,000 Americans and counting - Aaron Rupar
In Texas, over 21,000 people have died from COVID-19.

At his rally just now President Trump told supporters the coronavirus “affects elderly people...people with heart problems and other problems. That’s what it really affects. That’s it.” - Weijia Jiang

In Texas, 80% of COVID-19 deaths are people aged 60+; by race/ethnicity, 56% of the deaths are Hispanic.

Are You Registered to Vote?

With all the Covid-19 disruption of our normal lives, many of us have had to put several things on the back burner to take care of later. 


One of those things may be registering to vote.  If you are not registered yet, but would like to be, we can help. 


We have certified  Van Zandt County Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrars available right now.  Text 903-275-1064 to make arrangements to meet with one of our registrars to get you registered to vote. 


October TBD is the deadline for registering for the general election.

Are You a Texas Student Voter, Living Away from Home?

If you are a student voter and living away from home, voting in November will take a bit of advance planning.

1) If you are registered at your parents' or guardian's address, one option is to request an absentee vote by mail ballot from the County Clerk, to be sent to your away from home address.


Applications to vote by mail must be received by TBD at the County Clerk's Election Office. Send your application in as early as possible.


2) Or, plan to vote in person, either during early voting or on election day, at the location corresponding to your voter registration address.

3) Or, change your registration to your new location. The deadline to change your registration is TBD.

Texas Secretary of State Information

Register2Vote will send you an application and a stamped envelope addressed to your County Voter Registrar's office.

Mail your application! You are not registered until your County Voter Registrar's office receives it.

Verify your voter ID document.

For voter registration questions, contact the Van Zandt County Clerk's office.


How to request an application to Vote by Mail (VBM)

Are You Concerned about Using the USPS to Return Your VBM Ballot?

The Governor of Texas recently issued a proclamation expanding VBM  ballot drop-off options.

If you are concerned that there will not be enough time (allow AT LEAST 5 days) to mail-in your VBM ballot for the Nov 3rd election, you may drop-off your ballot (see instructions) at the County Clerk's Election Office.

You may drop-off your ballot  anytime after you receive & complete it. You will need a valid ID, and you may only drop-off your own ballot.
