It's ok to ask for help voting. (Really, it is.)

With so many candidates and local bond proposals on the ballot, it's perfectly understandable to feel a little overwhelmed.

Fortunately, the Travis County Elections Division has you covered. They have this handy feature called Voter Information at a Glance (http://www.votetravis.com/vexpress/display.do) where you can plug in your contact information to learn more. There, you can access your voting precinct number and see which races/options will appear on your ballot. The website can also help you find your polling location (even wait times), your status as a Travis County voter, and all you need to know about voter ID.

If you encounter any difficulties while voting or have any questions we advise you to contact the Travis County Elections Division (the Travis County Republican Party does not run this election):

(512) 238-VOTE (24-hour automated voice-response system)
(512) 854-4996
