Thursday, July 2, is the last day for El Paso County voters to apply for a ballot by mail during the 2020 primary runoff election. 

According to the El Paso County Elections Department, a person is qualified for mail-in ballot if he or she is 65-years-old or older, sick or disabled, confined in jail or out of the county on election day and during the early voting time period. 

The Application for a Ballot by Mail (ABBM) must be submitted to the Early Voting Clerk in any of the following ways:

  1. Hard copy by regular mail at 500 E. San Antonio Ave., Suite 314, El Paso, Texas 79901
  2. UPS or Federal Express
  3. Fax to (915) 546-2220 (if faxed, make sure the application is legible) 
  4. Email to [email protected] 

If the application is submitted via fax or email, it must also be submitted by mail and received at the El Paso County Elections Department office no later than the fourth business day after the request is sent.

Early voting for Texas’ primary runoffs is from June 29 through July 10, with election day being held July 14 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
