A link to the voter registration application has been down on the Texas secretary of state’s website for hours Saturday, days before the deadline to register for November elections.
The secretary of state’s office says it is working to fix the broken link on its website. At 1:46 p.m. Saturday, the office tweeted an alternative link to the form and said “service will be restored as soon as possible.” A spokesman for the office said there was a “server issue.”
Texans who want to register to vote should fill out the form, print it, sign it and mail it to the voter registrar in the county where they live.
