For all you Texans who are outside your County or the state... You can vote by mail in the Primary.

For everyone who is age 65 or over OR is disabled, you, too, can vote by mail.

There's a great tool at where you can find your name, click on the reason for voting by mail, and the form will populate with all the required info.  Just type in where you want your ballot mailed, and print it out.

Sign the form, address it to the Clerk listed on the bottom, and put it in the mail.   If you wish (especially if you are outside the state or country), you can fax it.   These applications must go to your local clerk in your county, but this great tool automatically gives you  the address and fax for your clerk.

Fool proof.  If you have not recently changed your address, and this form populates with an old address, you're probably still REGISTERED at that address,

 You MUST get this in by February 26th at 5:00 pm.  That gives time for the ballot to me mailed to you, you to mark it, and get it back in by election day, March 4th.

In Texas and need to help your grandma or neighbors who are over 65 or disabled?   Just call up their name, select the reason on the application by clicking on "Over age 65" or "Disabled".   Print it out.   Address an envelope to the appropriate clerk (as listed on the form), stamp it, and take it by for your friend to sign.   Drop it in the mail for them.
(NOTE:  You MUST NOT assist a voter or handle the ballot after they receive it.  The only exception is that you can "assist" only one person with mailing the actual ballot.   However, you may help as many folks as you'd like with the applications.)

Know college students out of the state?  Send them the link to:

You won't be able to caucus if you vote by mail, but you'll at least help allocate the primary delegates.

Remember, 126 delegates are allocated by the Primary and 67 by the caucus.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
