If you want to make sure that you're registered in Dallas County and that your registration hasn't expired, the Dallas County Election website has a voter form that accesses a database of voters in the county. Type your last name, first and middle followed by your date of birth and click "Submit." If you are registered, at the bottom of the page it will read "Voter registration file current as of (date)."

After finding out that your registeration hasn't expired, add your street address, city and zip code and the form will take you to a page with your precinct number on it.
