How can I find my polling location?

If you do not know where your polling place is,you can use team1.sos.state.tx.us to find your polling location.To do a polling place search, you may select one of three methods: search by: 1. your Texas driver's license number, if you provided it when you applied for voter registration; 2. your Voter Unique Identifier (VUID),which appears on your voter registration certificate; or 3. your first and last name

Texas: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:00 AM-7:00 PM

Bring Appropriate identification with you to the polls

  • When you arrive at the polling place, you will be asked to present one of the seven (7) acceptable forms of photo ID, unless you are a voter with a permanent exemption on your voter registration certificate. The election official will ask if you have moved and then ask you to sign the list of people who have voted in the precinct.

Depending on the type of election:local, statewide, national, or combination – you will be handed:

  • A paper ballot on which you will select your choices and which will be counted by hand;
  • A paper ballot on which you will select your choices by darkening an oval, completing an arrow, or “marking” with the aid of a voting machine; or
  • A slip of paper with a numerical access code or, in some counties, a ballot activator card. In the next available voting booth, enter your code or card and let the on-screen instructions guide you through the process of electronic voting.

Here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:

  • Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
  • United States passport

Early Voting

  • Many Texans vote early. Texas enables residents to vote in the days and weeks before an election to make the voting process more convenient and accessible. There are two ways to vote early: by showing up in person during the prescribed early voting period or by voting by mail.
