Election Day Information

Texas law permits anyone to vote who is registered and eligible within the political jurisdiction holding an election. The Elections Department establishes and staffs polling locations for countywide elections and any political jurisdiction that contracts with the Elections Department. Locations depend on availability and the jurisdictions holding the election. Election Day Polling Locations are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Election Day Locations are listing on our upcoming elections page for each individual election. Click here.

Currently in Ellis County, Election Day voters must vote at their voting precinct location. On your Voter Registration certificate, you will see a precinct number. Your residence is located in a specific “precinct” or area within the county where you will vote on Election Day. In some cases, precincts may be combined to accommodate joint local elections. You can also call the Elections office at 972‐825‐5195 to find your voting location. Did you receive your new voters registration certificate?  Click Here...

What if I am physically unable to enter a polling location?  
If you are physically unable to enter the polling place, you may ask that an election officer bring a ballot to you at the entrance of the polling place or to your car at curbside. After you mark the ballot, give it to the election officer who will put it in the ballot box. Or, at your request, a companion may hand you a ballot and deposit it for you. Tip: If you plan to go alone to vote curbside, it is wise to call ahead so election officials will expect you (972-825-5195). Generally speaking, you may vote curbside during the early voting period (the 17th day before Election Day until the 4th day before Election Day) or on Election Day.

Notice of Voting Order Priority
Pursuant to Section 63.0013, Election Code:
An election officer may give voting order priority to individuals with a mobility problem that substantially impairs the person's ability to move around.
