DALLAS COUNTY VOTERS CAN VOTE WHERE THEY WANT TO VOTE ON NOV 5TH!

468 Dallas County Election Vote Centers Will Provide Convenience For Voters

 WHAT:

Dallas County voters will have the option to vote where they want to vote on the upcoming Election Day – November 5, 2019.  Dallas County Elections will open the doors to 468 new Vote Centers located across the county providing voters with the option of convenience to vote near home, work, school or anywhere in the county.  For the first time in history, Dallas County voters are no longer required to vote at their home precinct on election day.

The Vote Centers will introduce a new sign-in and express voting machines designed to make voting as easy as 1-2-3.  The new equipment is not connected to the internet. Voting is secure and efficient, so voters can be assured their vote counts.

Dallas County becomes one of 65 Texas counties that are using vote centers on election day.  “No more excuses where ‘I don’t know where my polling place is.’ Well now there are 468 Vote Centers that will be open on election day providing the choice of convenience to our voters,” said Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole.

The new express voting machines offer the ease of electronic voting, with options to increase font size or contrast to make it easy to read.  They will also print out the voter’s selections on a paper ballot allowing the voter a chance to review it.  Separate vote tabulating machines record the ballot choices electronically and safeguard the original paper ballot as a back-up in the event of a recount.
