Get Ready for the Polls

1. Print your ballot

See what your ballot will look like and make a plan for who are you’re voting for. Complete the voter look up and then you can access your personal ballot. AISD school board elections are the LAST thing on the ballot. We are supporting:

  • Arati Singh
  • Kristin Ashy
  • Ted Gordon

2. Decide when you want to vote

Early Voting begins Monday, October 22 and ends Friday, November 2. Hours are Monday—Saturday (7am-7pm), Sunday (Noon—6pm).  Most people in Travis county vote early.  We recommend you vote early, too.

3. Decide where you want to vote

 There are locations all over town with some operating all throughout early voting and other mobile locations change sites daily.  You can vote wherever you see a “Vote Here” sign.  For a full list of locations, go here.

4. Know what to bring

You don’t have to dig out that voter card they sent you, unless you just want to.  You can show up with one of the following: Texas Driver’s Licence or ID, Military ID with photo, Passport, or Citizenship Certificate with photo. For a full list of approved ID, see the Travis county clerk’s website


You can do this. Remember the machines are not touch screen so you will have to twirl the dial and click the buttons to complete your ballot.  Once you get going, it is not hard.   We promise.  If you are feeling nervous, you can read up on the eslate machines you will use to vote.

6. Wear your “I Voted” sticker as a badge of honor
