Early voting starts in a few days
October 13, 2020
Early voting begins on October 13, 2020, and ends on October 30, 2020. Visit vote411.org to check your registrations status, find your nearest polling place, and see exactly what’s going to be on your ballot this year. According to votetexas.gov, “there are two ways to vote early: show up in person during the prescribed early voting period or vote by mail.”
Vote in person
Registered voters can begin early voting at the polls October 13-30, 2020.
Voters also have the option for curbside voting. This option is specifically for people with disabilities or those that are physically unable to enter the voting place. Call your county’s election office and they will send someone to your car with voting equipment.
To vote early by mail, request an application for ballot by mail and send it to the early voting clerk in the county you are registered to vote. You may request a ballot by mail if you:
- will be away from your county on Election Day and during the hours that early voting is conducted
- are sick or disabled
- are 65 years of age or older on Election Day
- are confined in jail
Visit sos.texas.gov for more information and to get a formal ballot by mail application.

While you are voting, be proactive about your health and protect yourself from flu and COVID-19 transmission. Stay healthy while voting with these four tips:
- Get the flu vaccine.
- Wear your mask.
- Pack a travel-sized hand sanitizer.
