Election Day Voting Information:

If you live in Harris County, you can find where to vote on Election Day by using this page, based on the home address you listed when you registered to vote.

First, please note the following important information:

  • You are entitled to vote without being harassed or intimidated by anyone.
  • Bring personal identification with you to the polls. For this election, you ARE required to have a photo ID.
  • You do NOT need your voter registration card. (Of course, you DO need to be registered.)
  • Each poll will have a list of eligible voters for that location. If your name is not on that list, the election worker should call the Elections Office to see if your registration can be located.
  • If you are told that you cannot vote because your name is not on the list, or because your identification is not accepted, you must be allowed to cast a "provisional ballot". A provisional ballot is not counted until after the election, at which time election officials will determine whether you were properly registered to vote.
  • If records show you have moved, you can vote by signing an address confirmation.
  • You have the right to receive a demonstration of voting equipment before voting.
  • If you are disabled or are over the age of 65, you have the right to an accessible polling place and help in voting.
  • You may bring written materials into the voting booth to assist you as you cast your ballot.
If anyone challenges your right to vote:
  • Ask for the name of the person who is denying you the right to vote and write it down.
  • Ask to talk to a supervisor and lodge a complaint or call the Harris County Elections Office at: 713-755-6965, or, if you would rather, you may call the Harris County Democratic Party at 713-802-0085 and report your complaint.

To find your polling place, enter your 5-digit zip code and click "Continue". You must use a zip code for an actual street address. Zip codes for post office boxes will not be accepted.

Please note that this location is open on Election Day, Nov. 4, only. For Early Voting, please click here.

How to Vote Early By Mail:

You can vote early by mail if you are:

  • at least 65 years of age; OR,
  • you are sick or disabled; OR,
  • confined in jail, but eligible to vote, OR,
  • you will be out of Harris County for any reason from Oct. 20 - Oct. 31 and on Nov. 4, so you can't vote in person both during the early vote period or on Election Day.

    To vote by mail, you must fill out and mail an application so that you will be sent a ballot. You may apply for the ballot on or after Sept. 6. The county must receive your application by Oct. 25. If you are a Harris County voter, you can click here to download an application to vote by mail.

    Once you receive and mark your ballot, you must mail it so that it is received by 7:00 pm on Election Day. If you apply to vote by mail, and then decide to vote in person instead, you must cancel your request in writing or bring your unmarked ballot with you to the polls for cancellation.

    There are special instructions for voters who are serving in the armed forces or who are living outside the United States. For more information, please click here.
