Protect yourself and election workers during the COVID-19 pandemic

If you are eligible to vote by mail, complete your application well before the deadline to avoid delays and ensure that you can vote from home.  Questions regarding eligibility should be directed to Bexar County Elections Department at 210-335-8683. 

If you are planning to vote in person, minimize crowding and lines by:

  • deciding who you’ll vote for in advance, using VOTE411.org to learn about candidates and print your sample ballot with choices marked
  • voting at off-peak hours—usually the middle of the morning or afternoon
  • voting during Early Voting 

Safety precautions in place at polling locations

The safety precautions listed below were in place for the primary runoff elections in July.  Similar measures will likely be taken for the November election.

  • Election officials will wear face masks, face shields, gloves, and use hand sanitizer. 
  • A plexiglass shield will provide an additional barrier at tables where check-in takes place. 
  • Social distancing will be enabled with
    • floor markings,
    • one voting unit per table (not the usual two), and
    • no more than 10 people permitted in the voting area at a time. 
  • Voters will be provided with hand sanitizer and a choice of implements for no contact voting:
    • food prep plastic gloves,
    • finger cots, or
    • a pencil for signing in and using the eraser end as a stylus for the voting machine touchscreen.

Bexar County Elections Department recommends that voters wear face masks.
