What to Expect at the Polls

  • Bring your Texas ID, Texas driver's license, or a passport.
  • Bring your mask.
  • When you sign in, the poll worker will ask you for your ID and if your current address matches the address on your ID. This is so they can figure out if you have moved. The address on your ID does NOT have to match the address on the registration roles. But, you must be registered in the county in which you are voting.
  • Curbside voting is available for those who are physically unable to enter the building.
