Ask the editor: Where do I vote in the May election?


In short—any polling location in Harris County. For the first time, beginning with the May 4 joint election, Harris County voters will be able to cast their ballots at any of the 700 polling locations countywide, both during early voting and on election day.

The decision was made by Texas Secretary of State David Whitley, who approved the county’s application to participate in the Countywide Polling Place Program on March 7. Prior to this decision, Harris County voters were able to cast their ballots at any polling locations countywide during early voting but had to cast their election day ballots at precinct-specific locations.

Harris County is now one of 53 designated counties that participates in the Countywide Polling Place Program, according to the secretary of state office’s website. Registered voters will still be able to vote with a mail-in ballot if they qualify. For more information on the Countywide Polling Place Program, visit
