Step 1: Confirm you are Registered to Vote in Dallas County at least a month before the election
Enter your name and birthday into Voter Lookup at DallasCountyVotes.org
to confirm your registration is “active” in Dallas County. If you are not “active,” see details on registering to vote.
. All new registrations or updates - name change, new address - must be completed 30 days before an election.
Step 2: Confirm you have photo ID
See List of Required ID for Voting in Texas
and what to bring to the polls if you can’t get an ID or it is expired.
Step 3: Choose when and where you will vote
All Dallas County registered voters may vote in person at any
Dallas County polling location either during Early Voting or on Election Day. You can vote near home, near work, or near your child’s school. Choose a date and time that works for you. For dates, times, and locations for the upcoming election, see Key Dates for Elections
The League of Women Voters highly recommends voting during Early Voting.
Step 4: Check for transportation to the polls
Be certain of your mode of transportation. Will you need a ride?
*Consider going with family or friends
*Contact your local political party office
to see if they have options available for a ride to your voting location.
Step 5: Research candidates and issues on your ballot
About 30 days before Election Day, the League of Women Voters populates Vote411.org
and supplies libraries with printed voter guides. Both contain unedited answers from candidates to questions on relevant issues and pro/cons on propositions and bonds. If you use Vote411.org, remember to print your choices or make notes, because no phones are allowed at the polls
. Here are Directions and Tips on using Voters Guide / Vote411.org
Step 6: Bring these items to the polls
1. Your photo ID is required.
2. Any paper notes, printed research from Vote411 or your sample ballot with your candidates marked, because you can't use your phone at the polls.
3. Please wear your mask.
4. Dallas County Vote Centers plan to have clean styluses and stations with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes available for all voters to use, but you may bring your own. You may also bring gloves. The election workers will be wearing masks and be behind Plexiglas.
