Election Day 2020: What You Need to Know

Tuesday, November 3 is Election Day for the 2020 general election. The polls are open from 7 am – 7 pm. It’s recommended to check the open polling locations in your area. In some counties, Election Day voting may be restricted to locations in your designated precinct.

The deadline for mail-in ballots to be returned to the county is Nov. 3. If they are postmarked by 7 pm, they will be counted if they’re received by the county on Nov. 4 by 5 pm.

Before heading to the polls, read the Secretary of State’s released guidance on recommended health protocols for Texas election officials and voters in response to COVID-19. This guidance reflects the minimum recommended health protocols to help ensure the health and safety of all voters, election office personnel, polling place workers, and poll watchers in Texas.
