Polls are open in Texas from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Registered voters can vote in either the Republican Primary Election or the Democratic Primary Election, but not both. Texas is an open primary state, so voters are not registered to a specific party and can vote in either party.
Voters will have to decide whether they want a Democratic or Republican primary ballot when they go the polls. Then they stay with that party through the runoff. However, a voter's primary choice does not commit them to vote for a particular candidate in the general election. They can vote for either party’s candidate in the November election.
In Texas, a person must be registered to vote 30 days before an election. You can check to see if you are registered to vote on the Texas Secretary of State website.
The Texas Secretary of State website also has information on voting locations and key election dates.
In order to vote in person during early voting or on election day, the voter will be asked to present an acceptable form of photo ID. Acceptable forms of ID include:
• Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
• Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
• Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
• Texas Handgun License issued by DPS
• United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph
• United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph
• United States Passport (book or card)
