Texas.gov

The place to take care of government transactions, find information about our great state, engage with your government, or just get pointed in the right direction. Need contact information for your state representative? Need to know where to vote on Election Day? Need to know how to change the address on your driver’s license? Texas.gov is the place to begin.

 

USA.gov

Search Every U.S. Government Website

USA.gov searches only federal, state, and local government websites for the public. Its search box works like other search engines you're used to, but USA.gov only returns results from government web pages, most ending in .gov or .mil. This helps you be sure you’re getting official information you can trust--and there’s no advertising.
