HOUSTON – Tuesday is the primary runoff election across the Houston area as voters will cast their ballot.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. across local counties. Voters must vote at the voting precinct where they are registered to vote.

In Harris County, voters must go to the polling place of the precinct where you are registered to vote. Other counties use voting centers, and allow people to cast their ballot at any center.

It is important to know your options and the nearby polling locations before heading out to cast your vote. 

To find polling locations, view a personal sample ballot or review the list of acceptable forms of identification to vote at the poll, voters may visit HarrisVotes.com or call the Harris County Clerk’s office at 713-755-6965.
