Voting in the November 5 Elections: Vote Early!

Below are some tips on how to be an effective and knowledgeable voter without exhausting yourself. As many of you know, I’m a deputy voter registrar (which means I can register people to vote in Harris County) and I encourage everyone who is able to get out and vote early and often.**

Coming up we have an election on November 5, 2020, with early voting running from October 21 through November 1 (details below), and there are some important items on the ballot. I’ll add a few that I’ve been thinking about later.

Note that you can vote anywhere during early voting and on election day!

**kidding. It’s illegal to vote more than once in an election. Please don’t get yourself arrested for voter fraud. That’s not a thing.

  1. Pull up your sample ballot from harrisvotes.com to print or write down names since you can’t bring your phone into the booth.
  2. You can vote at any location during early voting (see dates below) AND on Election Day (this is new for 2019!): harrisvotes.com/EarlyVoting.
  3. If you want directions to the nearest early voting location text “VOTE” to (833) 937-0700 to use the no-cost service TextToPolls created by student Nile Dixon.
  4. The League of Women Voters of the Houston Area Voters Guide is an excellent resource to do your own research at Vote411.org.
  5. If you doing your own research isn’t feasible the Houston GLBT Political Caucus endorsements are a great starting point: http://www.thecaucus.org/endorsements/
  6. Bring ID! Although if you don’t have it you can still vote. (Details here: https://www.harrisvotes.com/VotingInfo#IDs)
  7. If you received an “address confirmation” letter or if you moved you can still vote. And if your name isn’t on the list of registered voters you can request a provisional ballot. Details here.
