  • US military ID card with your photograph
  • US citizenship certificate containing your photograph
  • US passport


If you do not any of these forms of identification, do not fear, visit this website to learn more about what are acceptable forms of identification. Please note that absentee voting identification requirements may differ from the in-person identification requirements.

When and where can you vote?

Early voting on campus begins Oct. 22 and goes until Oct. 24; Texas State University is offering early voting in the LBJ Student Center on those days from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Early voting is great because you don’t have to go to your assigned precinct to vote.

Election day is on Nov. 6 and you are required to go to your assigned precinct to vote. Your corresponding precinct number is on your voter registration card, you can find your precinct on this document.

Exercise your right to vote this election season, Bobcats! Be sure to educate yourselves on the candidates so that you make the most informed choice you can!
