Mobile Voting Station to Make a Stop at St. Edward's University
Election Day is getting closer, but Travis County voters can beat the rush by casting their vote early. On Tuesday, Oct. 26, a mobile voting station will stop at St. Edward's University in order to bring the polling place to the voter and accommodate busy schedules.
"Early voting is the perfect opportunity for voters to exercise their most sacred political right," said St. Edward's University Assistant Professor Brian William Smith, PhD. "With early voting and convenient locations, voters don't have an excuse not to vote."
Registered voters can vote with a voter registration card, driver's license or any government-issued photo ID, birth certificate, United States citizenship papers or passport, a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement or other official document that shows the name and address of the voter.
Early voting in Texas began on Monday, Oct. 18, and will run through Friday, Oct. 29.
