Early Voting

Voters who are registered in Dallas County may vote early at any Early Voting location in the County. Early Voting begins October 21 and ends November 1.

Election Day Voting

This year, for the first time, Dallas County voters will be able to vote at any Election Day Vote Center, rather than having to vote on Election Day at their local precinct polling place.

This means that you may vote close to home, or, if it is more convenient, you may vote close to work or where you are running errands, as long as you are within Dallas County.

Election Day voting is open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
