AUSTIN — Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade is reminding Texas voters Early Voting for the November 6 General Election begins Monday, Oct. 22, and continues through Friday, Nov. 2. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

“Early voting allows you to vote when and where it’s most convenient for you in your county of residence. It’s easy and flexible,” said Secretary Andrade. “I urge Texans to visit VoteTexas.gov to find out when, where and how they can vote. It’s a one-stop resource for questions regarding the voting process in Texas.”

Voters should contact their local elections office to locate the polling place nearest or most convenient for them. Or, they can use the links at www.votetexas.gov. Polling place times will vary from county to county.

Additionally, photo identification as required in Senate Bill 14 will not be required in early voting or on Election Day. To cast a ballot during early voting or on Election Day, voters should present their voter registration card or in lieu of a voter registration card, at least one of the following:

A driver’s license or personal identification card issued to you by the Texas Department of Public Safety. You may also bring a similar document issued to you by an agency of another state, even if the license or card has expired;

A form of identification that contains your photograph and establishes your identity;

A birth certificate or other document confirming birth that is admissible in a court of law and establishes the person’s identity;

Your United States citizenship papers;

Your United States passport;

Official mail addressed to you by a governmental entity; or

A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.
