Election Day for the Republican and Democratic primaries is here. Voters can cast their ballots for their party’s nominees from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 1.
In Texas, voters can choose the ballot for any party’s primary or convention (for those parties not holding primaries) when they show up at the polls. You don’t have to register as a party member. However, if a person votes in one party’s primary/convention, they can’t participate in another. Currently, only the Republican and Democratic parties hold primary elections in Texas.
Burnet County voters can go to any polling location as the county uses Vote Centers.
Voters in Blanco and Llano counties must use their designated voting precinct polling site March 1. A person’s voting precinct can be found on their voter registration card. The voting precinct is not the same as a county commissioner precinct.
