Texas Extends Early Voting for November Election; Avoid Long Lines on Election Day


Amid many lawsuits by groups calling for Texas to expand current mail-in voting laws, citing COVID-19 concernc, Gov. Greg Abbott has  extended the early voting period for the November election by six days, citing continued challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Early voting for the Nov. 3 election will now begin Oct. 13 and will continue through Oct. 30.

 Some important dates to remember in the state of  Texas from the Texas Secretary of State’s office:

Last Day to Register to Vote Monday, October 5, 2020
First Day of Early Voting by Personal Appearance Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Last Day to Apply for Ballot by Mail
(Received, not Postmarked)
Friday, October 23, 2020
Last Day of Early Voting by Personal Appearance Friday, October 30, 2020


With so many questions surrounding the delays at the USPS of late, voters are encouraged to take advantage of the early voting period rather that the anticipated long lines on Election Day; or a chance that your mail-in ballot won’t delivered in time.
