Where to Vote

Top 10 Voting FAQs

I’m not sure if I’m registered; how can I confirm my voter registration status?

You can confirm your registration status on the Texas Secretary of State’s website. If you registered in the last few weeks and can’t find your registration, call your county voter registrar’s office to confirm your status.

Where can I vote?

Good news! You can vote at ANY polling location in your county during early vote. Find a polling place near you here.

On Election Day, if your county participates in the Countywide Polling Place Program (CWPP) – commonly referred to as ‘Vote Centers’ – you can vote at any location in your county of residence.

If your county does not participate in the CWPP, you can only vote at the voting precinct assigned to you. Find you polling pace here.

What type of ID do I need to vote?

You can use one of the following seven forms of photo identification (can be expired up to four years):

  • Driver license
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas license to carry a handgun 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
What if my ID doesn’t match my current address?

That’s okay, as long as your name matches, your ID will be accepted. Texas does not require the address to match.

I registered to vote on campus but I’m back home – where can I vote?

Unfortunately, the deadline to update your registration in another county has passed. Therefore you have to vote in the county where you are registered to vote. However, voting by mail might be an option for you. See the FAQ below on voting by mail eligibility and how to obtain a vote by mail application.

I filled out a voter registration application, am I able to vote by mail now?

The voter registration applications and the vote by mail applications are completely different and separate forms. If you would like to vote by mail you can check if you qualify and fill out a Vote By Mail Application. However, in order to vote by mail, you must be registered to vote.

Am I eligible to vote by mail? How do I do it?

You can vote by mail if:

  • You will be outside of the county where you are registered during Early Vote AND Election Day
  • You are sick or have a disability
  • You are confined in jail without a felony conviction
  • You are age 65 and over on Election Day

If you are eligible, you can request an application to vote by mail here.

But keep this in mind: Applications to vote by mail must be in the hands of elections officials by Feb. 18. If you want to vote by mail, you must move quickly and submit your application as soon as possible.

I lost my voter ID card – can I still vote?

Yes! The Voter ID card is not required if you have one of the following seven forms of photo identification (can be expired up to four years):

  • Driver license
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas license to carry a handgun 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
My license is expired, can I still use it to vote?

For voters aged 18-69, ID must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place. If you are 70 years of age or older, you may use a form of acceptable photo identification that has expired if the identification is otherwise valid.

Who can I call if I have a problem voting at the polls?
