AUSTIN, TX – Texas Secretary of State John Steen reminds voters that early voting by personal appearance begins today, April 29, and runs through May 7 for the May 11 Uniform Election.

“Early voting is a convenient way to cast a ballot without having to wait for Election Day,” said Secretary Steen. “It provides greater access and opportunities for Texans to participate in the election process.” 

Many cities, school districts and local entities across Texas will hold elections May 11. There are no statewide propositions on the ballot.

Any registered voter may vote in person at an early voting location established by the local authority conducting the election. For information on early voting locations, citizens should contact the local authority holding the election.
