In Texas, you do not declare a political party at the time of registration. In a primary election you will select a party at the polls in order to receive a ballot, and you may only participate in the same party's run-off election.
Voter registration is permanent. However, a registration is purged after a four-year period in "suspense" status. The voter registration is placed in "suspense" after two attempted mailings to a voter have been returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable for any reason.
Certificates expire every other year. New certificates are automatically sent to current registered voters prior to the expiration date.
If you are registering to vote for the first time, or making a name or address change, you will receive a Voter Registration Certificate within 30 days of submitting a completed voter registration application.
The current certificates are blue and have an expiration of 12/31/17.
