Election Day polls open at 7 a.m. Nov. 3 in McKinney and across Collin County.

There are 13 Election Day polling locations in McKinney. See a full map of local options below. For a full list of Collin County locations, click here. Polls are open until 7 p.m., and as long as voters are in line before polls close, they will be able to cast a vote.



Collin County voters may cast a ballot at any polling place in the county. For a list of polling places and wait times, visit Collin County Elections here.

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.

For more information about local elections, including candidate Q&As and sample ballots, visit www.communityimpact.com/voter-guide.

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.
