An application may be submitted after the last day of the period for early voting by personal appearance and before 5 p.m. on election day.


To be eligible to serve as an applicant’s representative, a person:


must be at least 18 years of age;


must not be employed by or related within the third degree by consanguinity or affinity, as determined under Chapter 573, Government Code, to a candidate whose name appears on the ballot; and


must not have served in the election as the representative for another applicant.
