What do I do if I can't vote on Election Day?
There's always Early Voting! Early voting is a period of time before Election Day when all registered voters can cast their ballots. It's a great way to make sure you have time to vote.

I don't speak English. Can I bring a someone who does to assist me at the polls?
Absolutely! Feel free to bring a friend or family member to help you. (The only people you can't bring are your employer or a member of your labor union).
If I'll be out of my county, out of the state, or even out of the country on Election Day, how can I vote?
You can apply for an absentee ballot, as long as you will also be gone during Early Voting. More information here: https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/forms/5-15f.pdf
Do I have to vote at a particular location?
You definitely must vote within the county you are registered to vote. You may be required to vote at a specific polling location within your county; that's up to the county itself. Some counties have voting centers where you can vote no matter where you live in the county. Or in some counties, you can vote anywhere in the county, but just during early voting. Early voting is very convenient because you can potentially vote near your work, grocery store, or child's school instead of only being able to vote at your polling place.
Sometimes, usually on Election Day, you have to vote in your specific precinct at the polling place closest to you. Find your polling place here: https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp.do (polling locations will be updated 2 days before Early Voting starts).
