When and where can I vote in the May 9, 2015 election?
If you live in the City of Richardson and are in the Plano ISD, you live in Collin County.
Or, you can find your precinct number on your voter registration certificate. For an explanation of how to read your voter registration certificate, click here.
This year, the City of Richardson has contracted with the Dallas County Elections Department to conduct its City Council election. Thus, even though approximately one-third of the city lies within Collin County, both early voting and Election Day voting for Richardson City Council races will be handled by the Dallas County Elections Department.
If you are a Richardson resident who lives in Dallas County, this makes voting easy. You may vote early at any Dallas County early voting location (including the Richardson Civic Center). Click here to see all early voting locations in Dallas County.
For Richardson residents who live in Collin County the situation is a bit more complicated. You will be voting not only for Richardson City Council, but also for Plano ISD Board of Trustees (PISD) and Collin County Community College District (CCCCD) Board of Trustees races. The PISD and CCCCE elections are being conducted by the Collin County Elections Department.
Collin County residents of Richardson who wish to VOTE EARLY IN A SINGLE LOCATION will need to do so at the Renner Frankford Library, 6400 Frankford Road, Dallas, TX 75252. (Map)
This library will serve as an early voting location both for Dallas County and for Collin County. Richardson residents who live in Collin County will have to vote two separate ballots (one for Richardson City Council, and one for PISD and CCCCD), but can do so in a single location if they vote early at the Renner Frankford Library.
The dates and times when both counties will have early voting available at the Renner Frankford library at the same time are:
Days and Dates Times Mon-Sat, 4/7 - 5/2 8am - 5pm Mon-Tues 4/4 - 4/5 7am - 7pm
Collin County residents of Richardson may vote at other early voting locations in Collin County, but the Richardson City Council ballots will not be available at those locations. Likewise, they may vote at other early voting locations in Dallas County, but the PISD and CCCCD ballots will not be available at those locations.
You MAY vote early in two different early voting locations(Dallas County for Richardson City Council and Collin County for PISD and CCCCD), but again, only the Renner Frankford Library serves as an early voting location for both counties.
Early voting will begin on April 27th and will end on May 5th.

If you live in Collin County, you may vote for PISD and CCCCD races on Election Day at any Collin County Vote Center. However, you may only vote for Richardson City Council races at your local precinct polling place.
