    If you are on a desktop computer, you also can click on and drag the marker to a different location.

    Voting Locations

    • This is the place you go to vote on election day.
    • Note that, for some elections, the State of Texas allows "Election Day Vote Centers." For these elections, you can vote at any voting location and not just the one in your assigned neighborhood precinct.
    • The early voting center that is closest to the "you are here" location.
    • If you are registered to vote in Travis County, then you can vote at any of the early voting centers during the early voting period.
    • The mobile early voting centers are open only at certain times during the early voting period. If you are registered to vote in Travis County, then you can vote at any mobile early voting center that is open.
    • The map will display only mobile centers that are convenient to your address. You won't see any mobile center if you are in a location where a fixed early voting center is the best choice.
