2020 General Election: Voting Resources

This year the general election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The Texas Secretary of State's website, VoteTexas.gov, has a listing of other important 2020 elections dates, including the last day to register to vote, the last day to apply for a ballot by mail, and the dates for early voting.


In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published recommendations for election officials, poll workers, and voters on their webpage, Considerations for Election Polling Locations and Voters (updated June 10, 2020).


Below we've also compiled a list of resources from Texas state officials and other organizations related to the upcoming election, voting by mail, and voting and holding elections during a pandemic. Please use the contact information on the respective agencies' websites for any questions specific to their purposes.
