Early voting starts today

Monday, October 18, 2021 by Tai Moses

Early voting for the Nov. 2 election begins today, with polls open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-6 p.m. on Sundays. Find polling places, wait times, voter ID requirements and check the status of your voter registration at To make your life easier, here’s a list of the 26 early voting locations in Travis County, ready to download and print if you so desire. Early voting ends Oct. 29. Want to vote by mail? In Texas you must be at least 65 years old, sick or disabled, out of the county on election day and during the early voting period, or in jail but otherwise eligible. Friday, Oct. 22 is the last day to apply for a mail-in ballot, so you’ll want to get that taken care of ASAP. The Austin branch of the League of Women Voters publishes an outstanding non-partisan voters guide that has everything you need to know about what’s on the ballot, so read up, get informed, and get out there and vote!
