Every eligible Texan deserves to cast their ballot in this election. Know your rights.

If you have any questions or need help, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE at any time or get in touch here.

Know your rights!

  • You have the right to cast a ballot in secret, free from disclosure and intimidation.
  • If an election official questions whether you can vote, you are always entitled to cast a provisional ballot, which records your vote while election officials look more closely at your records.
  • If you can’t prepare your ballot because of a physical disability, or because you can’t read it, you have the right to assistance from a person of your choice.
  • If you can’t enter the polling place without assistance or without injuring your health, you have the right to have an election officer deliver a ballot to you at the entrance or curb of the polling place; you may also request that a person of your choice accompanying you to the polling place be allowed to bring the ballot to you and deposit it for you.
  • If you can’t communicate in English, you have the right to select an interpreter to communicate with election officials and translate the ballot for you.
  • As long as you are in line to vote at 7 p.m. when the polls close on Election Day, you are entitled to cast your ballot, no matter what.

If you have a problem:

  • If you’re not sure where your polling place is, you can contact your county’s local election official.
  • If the officials at the polling place tell you that you’re not at the right polling place, they should look up your polling place and tell you where it is.
  • If you see any problems, or if you have to vote a provisional ballot, you should report them immediately by calling 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
