Houston-area early voting guide

- In the 2012 presidential election, nearly twice as many Harris County voters cast their ballot by early vote or absentee compared to those who showed up on election day, according to the official county report.

In the first week of early voting turnout has been 45%  higher than the last presidential election and some believe if it stays on track more than a million votes could be cast by November 4th (the last day of early voting). 

In-Person Early Voting

In-person early voting was introduced to Texas in the mid-90's. The goal was to make voting convenient and accessible, giving citizens plenty of opportunity to cast their ballot. It also helps combat long lines on election day.

Any registered Texas voter is eligible to vote early between October 24th and November 4th. The following locations and hours were gathered from each county's website.
