Tex. Election Code Section 87.044
Disposition of Application


(a)

The early voting ballot board shall place each application for a ballot voted by mail in its corresponding jacket envelope. For a ballot voted under Chapter 101 (Voting by Resident Federal Postcard Applicant) or 105 (Voting by Military Personnel or Other Persons Overseas), the board shall also place the copy of the voter’s federal postcard application or signature cover sheet in the same location as the carrier envelope. If the voter’s ballot was accepted, the board shall also place the carrier envelope in the jacket envelope. However, if the jacket envelope is to be used in a subsequent election, the carrier envelope shall be retained elsewhere.

(b)

A board member shall deliver the jacket envelope, carrier envelope, and application in a container other than that used for the voted ballots to the general custodian of election records, to be retained for the period for preserving the precinct election records.
