Tomorrow is Election Day in Houston. So, what do you need to bring? Who is on the ballot? Where can you vote? I have you covered!

What Do I Need?

  • Bring your driver’s license or other approved photo ID.
  • If you don’t have an approved photo ID, bring a voter registration certificate, U.S. birth certificate, current utility bill, paycheck, bank statement, government check or another government document that has your name and address on it. You’ll also need to fill out a Reasonable Impediment form at the polling place.
  • You can bring a sample ballot or handwritten notes, but electronics are not allowed in the voting booth – so no, you can’t check notes on your phone.
  • If you need assistance, you can bring someone to help you while you vote. They must notify the presiding judge. Your assistant will take an oath and sign paperwork that they’re not forcing you to vote or persuading you to vote a certain way.

What About The Ballot?

What About Logistics?

  • Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m..
  • You can vote at any poll location on Election Day.
  • Find the closest poll location here.

Happy voting! I hope tomorrow is smooth for you.
