Vote in Texas
When can I vote earlier?
Early voting for the 2020 general election runs from October 13 to 30. Voters can vote at any polling station in the county where they are registered to vote in the early poll. Election day is November 3.
How will the vote be different due to the pandemic?
In general, polling stations will have guidelines in place for social distancing and regular cleaning. Several counties will offer ballot marking devices so that voters avoid contact with election materials. Poll workers will likely wear face masks and other protective gear, but masks will not be required for voters.
How do I know if I can vote by mail?
Texas is one of the few states that has not opened postal voting to any voter concerned about getting COVID-19 at a polling station. You can find the eligibility requirements and review other questions on postal vote here.
Are the polling places the same on polling day as during the advance poll?
Not always. You will want to check open polling stations with your local election office before going to vote. Additionally, you can confirm with your county polling station whether voting on polling day is limited to locations in your designated constituency or whether you can vote at any polling station.
Can I still vote if I have COVID-19?
Yes. If you’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are showing symptoms, consider requesting an emergency mail-in ballot or using curbside voting. Contact your departmental elections office for more details on the two options.
