Election Day is July 14, 2020! Do not forget to vote in the 2020 Primary Runoff Elections. Texas is holding runoff elections to determine who will fill up the final spots for the Democratic and Republican parties on the November General Election ballot.

Due to the coronavirus, Governor Greg Abbot doubled the period of in-person voting times to desaturate the density of crowds. Early voting dates are as follows: June 29, 2020 – July 2, 2020 (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and July 6, 2020 – July 10, 2020 (7 a.m. – 7 p.m.) A list of voting locations in Nueces County can be found here.

You can check to see if you are registered to vote here.

Voters can mail in or email their absentee ballot applications no later than the close of business on the 11th day before Election Day. If the 11th day is a weekend or holiday, the deadline is the first preceding business day. More information can be found about voting by mail here.

Domestic voted absentee ballots must be received by Election Day at 7:00 p.m. or by 5:00 p.m. if postmarked 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Overseas and military ballots have more information on the absentee ballot link.

During the Runoff Primary Election, you must vote with the same party you voted with in the March election. If you did not vote in the March election, you may vote with either party. Make sure to bring at least one form of I.D. (driver's license, United States passport, etc. You can find alternative forms of I.D. here.)

Election Day, as mentioned, is July 14, 2020. Voting locations will be open from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. When heading out to vote, make sure to wear your mask and practice social distancing once you're at your polling location. A list of polling locations for Election Day can be found here.

We hope to see a big turnout from Nueces County!
