Early Voting begins February 18th

Early voting is from February 18th - 28th. The League of Women Voters reminds registered voters that voting early is easy. The hours are convenient. There are fewer lines and voters may vote at any early voting polling location in their county.

This Election is important! Texans will be voting on candidates that will make decisions that impact their everyday lives.

It is easy to compare candidates online with the nonpartisan Voters Guide! Voters can find information at:

• VOTE411.org -- By entering an address voters can compare candidates, find where to vote and print a personalized ballot with candidate choices.

• www.LWVTexas.org -- This website provides a pdf of the statewide Voters Guides in English and Spanish. Read online or print to read.

The Texas League’s Voters Guide covers state wide races. Find local voting and election information, including polling places, on the local League of Women Voters Website or county website.

Texas voters are not allowed to use their phones in the polling booth. They may take the League of Women Voters’ Voters Guide, a sample ballot marking their choices or their own personal notes into the voting booth.
