How to find your polling location

Whether you're voting early or waiting until Election Day, there are a couple of ways to check where you need to go to cast your ballot.

Each county has a voting clerk, usually in the county clerk's office, and here is a list of them for all 254 counties in Texas.

The Texas Secretary of State's office also maintains its "Am I Registered?" page, where voters can enter their information to verify that they are indeed registered. Clicking on the link in the "Upcoming Elections" box gives a list of polling places for early voting and Election Day itself.
