New certificates are mailed every even years to all active registered voters, unless the voter has moved or convicted of a felony. Voters are encouraged to check the information on their new certificates for accuracy and retain them for upcoming elections. Corrections, if necessary, may be made on the back of the card, signed, and returned to our office.  Any person who has moved, had a name change, or been previously registered in Dallas County and does not receive a new voter registration certificate should contact our office. Voters who are placed on the “suspense list” are subject to having their voter registration canceled if their records are not updated within two federal general elections.
