Voting in Texas

First off, let's discuss the reason for the season: what is uniform election all about? Twice a year, in May and November, Texas offers voters an opportunity to let their voices be heard in local, state, and federal elections that impact each and every one of your beautiful lives as citizens of Texas.

Where can I Vote?

Registered voters (if you aren't already registered in Texas, I got you) can simply stop by a polling location closest to them. Locations are different in each county, so please make sure you research where your local polling locations happen to be.

What Do I Need to Bring?

Look at you, you catch on quick. When you arrive at your local polling location, make sure you bring at least one of the seven forms of acceptable photo ID. That's it!

See? Easy-peasy.

How Do I Cast My Vote?

For most of you out there, you will be presented to a voting machine that will regurgitate all of your info for you before you even cast your ballot. There are also services available for those with disabilities restricting them from traveling. So, brush up on your research of what you are voting for before you go, find those names or items on the machine, and cast your ballot.

There we go; you've just voted in Texas. It's always important to stay up do date on election details and making your voice heard. Every beach starts with a grain of sand.
