Available at the Texas State Library:

The 1867 Voter Registration includes names of voters who registered in the period between 1867 and 1869. A few entries date from 1870, but these occur infrequently.

Although some Voters' Registration lists appear in the Election Returns series of Secretary of State records, this group of ledgers contains the State Archives's only comprehensive listing of eligible voters in the state.

The original volumes have been microfilmed, and the film copies are available to be viewed at the Library, Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. They may be requested on interlibrary loan.
