On Election Day you will be required to vote at your precinct voting location instead of an early voting location. You will be able to find election day voting locations by using our search site Am I Registered?, which will be populated with voting sites well before election day. Or, you may want to contact the elections official in your county of registration election duties. Also, many newspapers publish election day polling locations. The hours of voting on election day are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Registered voters may vote early at a convenient polling location within their political subdivision. Unlike early voting by mail, you don´t need to state a reason for voting early in person. Polling locations may vary from election to election and will be posted below or on the Bexar County Elections Department Home Page as the information becomes available.

There are two ways to vote early in Texas: in person and by mail. Either option will eliminate waiting in long lines on election day. Early voting generally begins 17 days before an election and ends 4 days before. If the 17th day before election day happens to land on a weekend, then early voting begins the following Monday.

To vote in Texas, you must be registered. Simply pick up a voter registration application, fill it out, and mail it at least 30 days before the election date. Get your application here.
You are eligible to register to vote if:
- You are a United States citizen;
- You are a resident of the county where you submit the application;
- You are at least 18 years old on Election Day;
- You are not a convicted felon (you may be eligible to vote if you have completed your sentence, probation, and parole); and
- You have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.
Are you already registered?
To confirm your voter registration status, you may select one of three methods to perform a search:
- Your Texas driver’s license number, if you provided it when you applied for voter registration;
- Your Voter Unique Identifier (VUID), which appears on your voter registration certificate;
- Your first and last name.
