Early voting is from Oct. 21 to Nov. 1. Voters can vote at any county location during early voting. Election Day is November 5 with polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Texas now requires voters to show photo ID at the polls. IDs that can be accepted include: one of four Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) issued photo IDs (driver’s license, personal ID card, concealed handgun license, or election identification certificate) or one of three United States government issued photo IDs (passport, military ID card, U.S. citizenship or naturalization certificate). The photo ID must be current or expired no more than 60 days. Other photo IDs, including student IDs and employment IDs, cannot be accepted at the polls.
Those unable to vote in person during early voting or on election day can apply for a ballot by mail by contacting the county elections office or by downloading the application from http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/forms/pol-sub/5-15f.pdf. The completed application must be received (not postmarked) by Oct. 25. Photo ID is not required to vote by mail.
