Election Day is Tuesday, November 3

Texas voters can also vote before Election Day. 

The early voting period runs from Tuesday, Oct. 13, to Friday, Oct. 30, but dates and hours may vary based on where you live.

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; 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); or a 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. 

As a general rule of thumb for the GENERAL ELECTION in November (not the Primary Election in March), 

Remember to vote all the way down the ballot and don’t skip the lesser known races.

Additionally, some cities will have local races on their ballot.
