Early voting will take place from October 22, 2018 through November 2, 2018. Select the best polling location before you head out the door by checking the wait times at various polling locations on the Elections website at www.wilco.org/elections.

Voters are required to present an approved form of photo identification in order to vote in all Texas elections. Currently, Texas voters who do not possess and cannot reasonably obtain one of the seven forms of approved photo ID have additional options when casting their ballots. As provided by court order, if a voter does not possess and is not reasonably able to obtain one of the seven forms of approved photo ID, the voter may vote by (1) signing a declaration at the polls explaining why the voter is reasonably unable to obtain one of the seven forms of approved photo ID, and (2) providing one of various forms of supporting documentation. The Texas Secretary of State’s Office has updated the new requirements on www.VoteTexas.gov and their agency website www.sos.state.tx.us. The following are the seven forms of approved photo identification at the polling location:
