Election Advisory No. 2009-12

TO: All Election Officials
FROM: Ann McGeehan, Director of Elections
DATE: September 10, 2009
RE: New Law Regarding FPCA and Proposed FPCA Rules

As we described in Advisory 2009-08 concerning the 2009 Legislative Summary, House Bills 536 and 551 enacted by the 81st Legislature make changes to the Federal Post Card Application (“FPCA”) process. In summary, the two changes are:

Our office is authorized to adopt administrative rules to implement these changes. We welcome your comments and suggestions on the proposed rules. Our proposed rules may be accessed, and they will appear in the September 18, 2009 edition of the Texas Register. The rules must be proposed for a 30-day period, and the closing date for written comments is October 16, 2009.

Here are the key points to remember:

Permanent Voter Registration Using FPCA:

Electronic Transmission of an Image of an FPCA

We expect there to be many questions as we apply these new laws. The important thing to remember is: (1) an early voting clerk must copy and then forward an FPCA to the registrar (if the voter is not indefinitely away); and (2) a signed FPCA can now be scanned and e-mailed to the early voting clerk’s office. Please contact us at 1-800-252-VOTE(8683) if you have questions.
