Quote for the Week

The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do. Everything negative - pressure, challenges - is all an opportunity for me to rise. If you're afraid to fail, then you're probably going to fail

How do I vote in person?

Where can I vote on Election Day?

You can look up where to vote on Texas's site.

Can I vote early?

  • Yes, Texas does offer early voting. You can choose whether to vote on Election Day or during the early voting period, whichever is easier for you. This can be especially helpful if it would be difficult or not possible for you to vote on Election Day. Early voting locations may be less crowded, as well.
  • Learn more about voting early in Texas.
  • Early voting locations may be different from where you vote on Election Day. Check Texas's site to find where to vote early.

What do I need to bring?

You will be asked to show photo ID to vote in Texas.

Acceptable forms include:

  • Texas driver's license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas election ID certificate
  • Texas personal ID card
  • Texas handgun license
  • US military ID with photo
  • US citizenship certificate with photograph (doesn't need to be current)
  • US passport

Forms must be current or expired less than four years. For voters aged 70 or older, the acceptable form of photo identification may be expired for any length of time if the identification is otherwise valid. For voters aged 18-69, the acceptable form of photo identification may be expired no more than four years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place.

Voters without ID:

If you don't have ID and cannot obtain one due to a reasonable impediment, you'll need to sign a sworn statement that there is a reason why you don't have any of the accepted IDs, and present one of the following:

  • certified birth certificate
  • valid voter registration certificate
  • or a current utility bill, government check, bank statement or paycheck, or government document with your name and an address.

If you meet these requirements and are eligible to vote, you may vote in the election.

If you don't have ID and do not have a reasonable impediment to obtaining one or did not bring ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order to have the provisional ballot counted, you will be required to visit the voter registrar's office within six (6) calendar days of the date of the election to either present one of the forms of photo ID or submit a temporary affidavit, or, if applicable, qualify for the disability exemption, in the presence of the county voter registrar while attesting to the fact that you do not have any of the required photo IDs.

How can I check the status of my ballot?

You can check the status of your ballot on Texas's site.
