Early Voting In Person:

Many Texans vote early.  Texas enables residents to vote in the days and weeks before an election to make the voting process more convenient and accessible.  There are two ways to vote early: by showing up in person during the prescribed early voting period or by voting by mail.

Generally, early voting in person begins the 17th day before Election Day (if that’s a weekend, early voting starts on Monday) and ends the 4th day before election day.  (EXCEPTION:  Early Voting for elections held on the May uniform election date starts the 12th day before Election Day and ends on the 4th day before Election Day.)  Vote at a location in your political subdivision that’s close to where you live or work.  All other voting rules and procedures apply – e.g., eligibility and polling hours.

Lines at early voting are usually shorter and the days and hours are more convenient.  Early voting is open to all registered voters, no excuses necessary!

Election Day Voting In Person:

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.

Marion County has been approved and authorized by the State of Texas to hold elections using countywide precinct polling locations (Vote Centers).  This allows Marion County registered voters to vote at ANY Vote Center that is convenient for the voter.  Voters can vote near where they work, live, or go to school within the county. You will no longer have to vote at your specific precinct location on Election Day. Voting at a Vote Center does NOT eliminate your voter registration precinct which is located on your voter registration certificate. Your residence is located in a specific “precinct” or area within the county. The political districts you are eligible to vote on are located on the right side of your voter registration certificate.  You can also call the Elections office at 903-665-3281 option 3 to find the closest Vote Center location to you.  Here is a list of Marion County Vote Center locations.


If you are physically unable to enter the polling place, you may ask that an election officer bring a voting machine to the entrance of the polling place or to your vehicle parked at the curbside. After the voter marks the ballot, you will then give it to the Election Officer, who will put it into the scan to record your vote, or, at the voter’s request, a companion may accompany the Election Officer and place ballot into the scanner to record your vote.  

TIP:  If you plan to go alone to vote curbside, it is suggested to call ahead so election officials will expect you. Curbsite voting is offered both during Early Voting and Election Day.
