STEP 1: Determine when to vote

You can vote early from Mon, Oct 24, to Fri, Nov 4 – or on Election Day, Tue, Nov 8. If you’re older than 65, disabled, or expect to be out of the county on Election Day, you can also vote early by mail. For more information, contact your county’s elections office.

STEP 2: Make sure you have the correct ID to vote

Texas law requires you to present a photo ID such as your Texas driver license, Texas personal identification card, or passport in order to vote. Your ID must be current or expired by no more than four years. Additionally, free Election Identification Certificates are available from DPS driver license offices.

If you’re unable to obtain any of the approved forms of ID due to a “reasonable impediment or difficulty,” there are additional options to help you cast your ballot, including your voter registration card, paycheck, or utility bill.

STEP 3: Determine where you will vote

It depends on where you live.  Below you will find information for Travis, Williamson, and Hays counties.  In Travis County you can also use this handy IVOTEEARLY site to determine where to vote.  If you live in another county, visit your county’s elections website to view a list of voting locations.  To make getting to and from the polls as easy as possible, we have compiled an awesome list of ride resources on our RIDES TO THE POLLS page.  Check it out!
