Election Day — Nov. 6, 2018

You registered to vote, then the early voting period came and went. You still haven’t voted. We’ve said it before — Texas ranks at the bottom in voter participation. However, this year may be different. 

During the early voting period, Texans showed up and surpassed 2014 and 2016 early voting numbers. Yay! But wait, it’s not over.

Did you miss out on early voting? Didn’t get an “I voted” sticker? Do you know a relative or friend who has not voted? Not to worry, there is one more opportunity to be heard. Yes, we got you.

Where Can I Vote On Election Day?

On Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 7 a.m.–7 p.m., you can only vote in-person at your local precinct. Generally, it’s a location close to the address you listed when you registered to vote. If you are registered to vote in Dallas County visit the “Voter Lookup” page and insert your first name, last name and date of birth. The site will provide information about your precinct number and your election day polling location. You can also view a sample ballot, which should be the exact same one you receive at the polling location.

If you are a Dallas County resident and your voter information is not showing up on the Dallas County site, or if you have not received your registration card, call the Dallas County Elections Voter Registration office at 214-819-6389.

What Do I Need to Vote

Texas law requires at least one form of voter identification. When you arrive at your polling location, be prepared to show one of the following:

  • Texas driver's license
  • U.S. military ID card (with your photo)
  • U.S. passport
  • Texas election identification certificate issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas handgun license 
  • U.S. citizenship certificate (with your photo)

Already forgot what to bring? Vote Texas has a helpful flyer to remind you (PDF - 365KB) what type of ID you need. If you do not have one of the IDs mentioned above, you can still vote. Visit Vote Texas for more information or call 800-252-8683.

Having Trouble Voting?

It’s wrong if you notice someone looking over your shoulder after you begin voting.

It’s wrong if someone is intimidating voters. It’s wrong if you are not allowed to vote even if you are in line by 7 p.m. or if your name was slightly different than what is listed on your ID.

If you have issues voting, please contact Texas Civil Rights Project at 866-687-8683 (for Spanish 888-839-8682).
