FUMC is a co-sponsor with Texas Impact for the Texas Faith Votes. We are being challenged with other congregations to show our pledge to vote! Please sign the pledge to vote on November 3! In light of COVID-19 safety, all eligible persons should apply to Vote by Mail.

Applications for the 2020 presidential election must be received by October 23 (applications should be mailed to arrive before that date). Then when the ballot is received (mailings are expected to begin September 30), return by mail OR for security, you may submit your vote-by-mail ballot in person, along with your photo ID at the County Clerk’s office (5501 Airport Boulevard, Austin, TX 78751-1410). You may go to www.votetravis.com and find out if your vote by mail application has been received, if your ballot has been mailed to you, and if your ballot has been received.

For other neighboring counties, see below. Drive-through drop-offs will be available by October 1 and locations can be found here (bring your photo ID). For more info, or if you need any help voting, please contact Jan Ashmos (jabc1129@yahoo.com, 512-771-3422) or Terri Sohn Purdy (terri.sohn@gmail.com, 512-680-4694), FUMC Vote-by-Mail Captains.
