Yes. The Center for Voter Information is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit civil rights group that focuses on women's issues. 

The group recently sent a mailing to older women who are registered to vote in Denton County, encouraging them to sign up for a mail-in ballot. 

Any registered voter age 65 or older, or with a disability, is eligible to vote by mail in Texas. The deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot is Friday, Oct. 26. 

Denton County Elections Administrator Frank Phillips said his office has received about 100 applications from such mailings. Fortunately, Phillips said, the group copied the mail-in ballot application from the Texas Secretary of State website, so when completed, it contains all the information required to apply for a mail-in ballot. 

However, the prepaid envelope is addressed to the office of Denton County Clerk Juli Luke, which does not handle elections. 

Luke confirmed that her office has been forwarding the applications to the elections office as they receive them.

Voters interested in casting a ballot by mail should send the applications to Early Voting Clerk, Denton County Elections, P.O. Box 1720, Denton, TX  76202.
