It’s Election Day. See What’s On Your Ballot And What You Need To Vote

Early voting in the November Midterms begins today Monday, Oct. 2  and runs through Nov. 2.

Across counties, in West Texas, there is a slew of local and county-wide races on the ballot. You can find a breakdown of what you can expect to see on your ballot below. If you don’t see your county below, you can enter your address here to see a sample ballot for your area.

What You Need

Before you head to vote, make sure you’re registered. You can do hat here. You can also check your polling location.

If you’re in Brewster County you can find your polling location here.  Voters in Jeff Davis County can find their polling location here. Polling locations for voters in Midland are here and here for voters in Ector County.

If you’re voting in Presidio County there are two polling locations: 301 N. Highland Avenue in Marfa and in Presidio at the Presidio County Anne at 300 East O’Reilly St.

Bring An ID

If you have a photo ID that is up to date, or expired up to four years, bring that ID to the polls.

If you had trouble getting an ID and just don’t have one, you have some options:

  • You can bring your voter registration card and use that as your form of identification.
  • If you don’t have your registration card, you can bring any kind of official document – that’s anything that has your name and address on it — like a bank statement or utility bill. While you are at the voting location, all you’ll have to do is a sign a form that says you had a reasonable impediment to getting an ID.
