Election Day is here: Where, how to vote

November 06, 2018 - 7:05 am

(KJCE) -- Finally, it's election day. Texas' Senate race, along with several House seats, state races, and local races are all on the ballot.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Long lines are anticipated - but as long as you are standing in line by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to cast your ballot.

You can find details on election day voting locations here:

The League of Women Voters has published its Voters Guide here.

To cast a ballot, you will need one of these seven types of photo identification, per Texas' Voter ID law:

  • A state driver's license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • A Texas election identification certificate (issued by DPS)
  • A Texas personal identification card (issued by DPS)
  • A Texas license to carry a handgun (issued by DPS)
  • A U.S. military ID card that includes a personal photo
  • A U.S. citizenship certificate that includes a personal photo
  • A U.S. passport

If you don't have one of those seven types of identification, you can still cast a ballot. You will have to sign a form swearing a "reasonable impediment" that prevents you from obtaining the appropriate identification. If you are claiming the impediment, you will need one of these types of identification:

  • Valid voter registration certificate
  • Certified birth certificate
  • A current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other document that shows the voter’s name and address (any government document that contains a voter’s photo must be an original)

Talk 1370 will have complete coverage Tuesday night of the results as they come in across the state. Join us on-air and online at Talk1370.com for the latest returns.
