Question: Is there a way to check the signature on file for a registered voter?

Answer: Both the state of Texas and the Harris County Clerk’s Office use signatures from registered voters on file to verify signatures on ballots-by-mail.

Signatures will be verified between the voter’s completed ballot and the signature on the voter’s vote-by-mail application to ensure voter integrity, the Harris County Clerk’s office wrote on its Frequently Asked Questions page.

To see if your ballot-by-mail was received and counted, call the Elections Help Line at 713.755.6965.
