VOTING IN PERSON
In-person voting occurs during two periods, so first, decide which one you will vote in:
I'm voting early
Lines tend to be shorter during early voting!
There is weekend voting during early voting!
Check the hours before you go vote here. You should check 1-2 days before you go for updated information!
I'm voting on Election Day
Election Day voting is from 7 AM – 7 PM.
Decide where you want to vote

VOTING BY MAIL/ABSENTEE
Determine if you’re eligible to vote by mail.
There are four potential qualifications to vote by mail:
being 65 years or older
being confined in jail, but otherwise eligible
being out of the county on election day and during the period for early voting by personal appearance
Mail your vote by mail application in
Seal the form and add postage:
If you printed your form, fold your form, place it in an envelope, seal, and add postage.
If your form was delivered to you from the Secretary of State, fold your form in half, moisten the top tab, seal, and add postage.
Address the envelope to your county election official, who’s address you can find here.
Your Absentee Ballot typically takes two weeks to come in the mail.
You can call your county’s election clerk to check on the status, if it’s been more than two weeks.
Find your county’s election clerk’s contact information here.
Mail your ballot in
Follow the instructions on your mail-in ballot to send it back with postage affixed. It is due at 7 PM on Election Day. Send it in as soon as possible as the ballot may take another two weeks to get delivered to the county!
Congratulations! A big thank you from TX Votes for your civic participation and engagement!
