Early voting starts today (!)

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Early voting, at long and nerve-wracking last, starts today in Travis County: Oct. 13-30, Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. and Sunday, noon-6 p.m. As usual, early voters may vote at any polling location in the county, but some of the locations are different this time around, so we recommend you check out the Travis County Clerk’s map which helpfully lists real-time waiting times at each location. For a thorough guide on how to vote this year, head on over to KUT News, which has compiled information on voting by mail and voting in person during a global pandemic. On that last point, in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19, officials ask voters to:

  • Wash hands before and after voting. Hand sanitizer will also be available at polling locations.
  • Wear a face mask that covers your nose and mouth.
  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other voters and poll workers.
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick.

Voting officials have added table shields and will be providing finger cots and sticks to use at the polling locations. Watch a video about the new protocols here.
