Voting in Person


Texas has uniform Election Days in November and May of each year, offering voters the chance to make their voices heard in local, state, and federal elections, including local and statewide ballot propositions that impact the everyday lives of Texas communities.

Voting in Texas is county-based, meaning that on any given Election Day, there are really 254 separate elections occurring at the same time. This decentralized system allows choices for county governments – which oversee elections – while simultaneously ensuring that every county operates under the same election laws as set forth in the Texas Election Code.

In this section, you will learn how to find your polling place in your county of registration, what to bring to the polls to identify yourself, what type of voting systems you will be using, and what to expect when you go to cast your vote.

Additionally, this section provides helpful information for voters with disabilities who may need additional assistance at the polls.
