Just a reminder for those who haven’t yet made it to the polls, the early voting period will continue through Friday Oct. 31.

Its nice that during the early voting period, you can vote at any location in the county in which you are registered.

On election day, however, you must vote at your precinct polling location.

Avoid the lines and chaos of election day by getting out there ahead of time.

For residents of Dallas County, here is a list of times and locations for early voting.

More information for student voters is available at the Texas secretary of state’s website.

Google also has a great tool with more information for voters, including absentee ballots — which must be received by your election officials by Tuesday Oct. 28.

Simply enter your home address and it takes you from there.

If you want a chance to weigh in on what many are calling the most important election in our lifetime, the deadline to register for the Nov. 4 election is Monday, Oct. 6.

Sponsored by Students for a Better Society and Democracy Matters, voter registration cards will be available for students throughout this week at the Mane Desk on the main floor of Hughes-Trigg Student Center. If you haven’t registered yet, stop by anytime Monday through Wednesday from 7 a.m. to midnight or Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. No postage required.

Early voting is Oct. 20 – 31. You must vote in your precinct on election day, but during early voting you can vote at any location. If you forget your voter registration card, you can use a valid identification to vote.

For first-time voters with questions on how to get started or what to do once you’re registered, check out this site for more information.
