Bexar County voters will be able to vote at any of the county’s 284 polling locations on Nov. 5, something that had previously been allowed for early voting only. Three previous locations have been closed and consolidated into the existing 284 sites.

Bexar County voters must stay in the county to vote, and non-Bexar County voters cannot come into the county to vote. 

You can check your voter registration and polling place information at the county website.

There are also new, touch-screen voting machines. Bexar is the third county nationwide to adopt touch screen voting. Individuals with mobility problems may be given voting order priority, according to the county.

This election is a joint constitutional amendment, general, special and bond election.
