Election Day Voting Locations

Residents in counties participating in the Countywide Polling Place Program (CWPP) can vote at any location in their county of residence. Residents in other counties may only vote at the voting precinct assigned to them and may find their voting location using the Secretary of State’s “My Voter Portal.” Election day voting hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at all polling places statewide.

Election Results

Election results will be available through the Secretary of State website. The Secretary of State election night portal provides preliminary results and updates every five minutes until 100% of precincts have reported in. While the majority of results typically are available within hours of polls closing, it can take more time for full results to be reported from all counties.

Financial Reports

Financial reports for candidates participating in the Runoff Election, including reports covering contributions received up to 30 days and 8 days before the March 1st election date, can be found through the Texas Ethics Commission Campaign Finance Search.
