Election Day polls open at 7 a.m. this morning in Plano and across Collin and Denton counties.

Plano residents who live in Collin County can vote at any countywide polling location on Election Day. Residents of Denton County must vote according to their assigned precinct.

There are 32 Collin County polling locations in Plano. See a full map of options below. For a full list of Collin County locations, visit this link. To find your assigned Denton County precinct, click here.



Polls are open until 7 p.m., and as long as voters are in line by that time, they can cast a vote. The Collin County map also provides an estimated wait time at each polling location.


There are no City Council or school board races in Plano this November—those will be on the ballot in 2021. There are several county, state and federal races that Plano residents will help to decide this year. Residents of Collin County can find a sample ballot here. Denton County residents can find their version here.

Collin County saw record turnout during early voting. As of the Oct. 30 deadline, 448,806 residents had voted either by mail or in person, which is 45% more than the 301,939 residents who voted early in 2016, according to the state.

There are still thousands of mail-in ballots unaccounted for in Collin County. The nonprofit Vote America has released an online tool that tracks ballots as they arrive at election offices across Texas. This will allow voters to check whether their mail-in ballot has been received.
