Vote like a Pro! Tip #1: Know what’s on your ballot.
In Travis County: visit elections.traviscountytx.gov and scroll way down. Enter your LAST NAME ONLY and your birthdate. Click on the upper right-hand corner of the search results for your sample ballot.

Vote like a Pro! Tip #2: bring your “cheat sheet” – no phones allowed. (or click here for vote by mail)
Cell phones and conspicuous flyers are not allowed to be out inside the polling place. It’s a good idea to write or print your choices on paper and bring it with you to vote!
If you print out your sample ballot to use at the polls (what a great idea!), be sure to verify all races shown electronically get printed! You may have to shrink the document in your printer settings for everything to print out on standard paper.
Vote like a Pro! Tip #3: Bring your ID.
There are lots of Voter ID options, even if you lose your usual ID.
- The address on your ID does NOT have to match the one on your voter registration.
- If you’re under 70 years old, your ID can be up to four years expired. If you’re at least 70 years old, there’s no limit to how expired your ID can be.
Vote like a Pro! Tip #4: Know when and where you are voting & mark it on your calendar.
Voting in person
Early voting starts October 23. Deadline to vote early is 7pm on Friday, November 3. Election Day is Tuesday, November 7. You may vote at any polling place that is within your county of residence. Polling days and hours vary by county – check locations and hours within your county of residence here: Travis County | Williamson County.
Do you have a Ballot by Mail at home? If you’re voting in person, bring your mail ballot with you, so the election workers can cancel it.
Running late? Work late? Need a ride? Remember, if you are in line when the polls close, you may stay in line to vote! Free ride-share to the polls for those in need of transportation!
Vote like a Pro! Tip #5: Make sure your mail-in ballot counts.
Voting by Mail
Already voted by mail? Track your mail ballot with your county clerk: Travis County | Williamson County to make sure it is received and counted! Mailed ballots must be postmarked no later than November 7 and received by 5pm on November 8th.
You are eligible for Ballot By Mail (BBM) in Texas ONLY IF one or more of the following applies to you:
- You’ll be out of town the entire time between October 23 – November 3 and on November 7
- You’re pregnant, and your due date is three weeks before or after Election Day
- You’re temporarily or permanently disabled
- You’re at least 65 years old
- You’re confined in jail but are still eligible to vote
- You’re in the hospital on Election Day (Emergency Ballot by Mail, which has different procedures)
If eligible, you must apply to receive a ballot by mail (BBM) and your county clerk must receive your application for BBM on or before the office closes on Friday, October 27. If you miss this deadline, you will need to vote in person. BBM applications and info by county: Travis County | Williamson County
When you submit your mail-in ballot, remember that your ID numbers go UNDER the flap of the carrier envelope. Put both your ID number AND the last 4 digits of your SSN there, just to be safe.
Vote like a Pro! Tip #6: Know your rights at the polling place.
If you are told you cannot vote, that you must vote a provisional ballot, or that your ballot by mail (BBM) vote won’t be counted – always verify with voter protection. If you are trying to vote in person, politely explain to the poll worker that you want to verify with Texas Voter Protection, and ask them to save your place in line while you step outside the polling place to use your phone. Once outside the polling place, visit https://texasvoterprotection.org/ or call 1-866-687-8683 (OUR VOTE). Voter assistance is available in multiple languages.
Vote like a Pro! Tip #7: Vote the whole ballot to save our schools!
High-quality public schools that serve every student are only possible through effective pro-public education leadership at the federal, state, county and local levels. School District elections are at the bottom/end of your ballot, but all the races – from State Props to Governor to Trustee – are somehow connected to supporting (or NOT supporting) public education.
