Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3. The nonprofit Vote America has released an online tool that tracks ballots that have arrived at elections offices across Texas. This will allow voters to check whether their mail-in ballot has been received.


Voters may bypass the U.S. postal service and return their mail-in ballots in person. Collin County election officials have set up a drive-thru drop-off location behind the election office at 2010 Redbud Blvd., McKinney, that will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Nov. 3.

Voters whose mail-in ballots have not yet been received may also cast a provisional ballot in person on Election Day. That provisional ballot will be counted if the mail-in ballot does not arrive at the county elections office by Nov. 4.

Community Impact Newspaper will be reporting about the election throughout the day Nov. 3 and will post results as they come in once the polls are closed. Follow the coverage at www.communityimpact.com/vote.
