Pasadena ISD reminds members of the community that early voting for the Nov. 4 election begins Monday, Oct. 20 and continues to Friday, Oct. 31.

Texas enables residents to vote in the days and weeks before an election to make the voting process more convenient and accessible. There are two ways to vote early: by showing up in person during the prescribed early voting period or by mail.

Eligible citizens may vote in person at any designated polling location, not just in the district where they reside. To find a full list of early voting locations visit www.harrisvotes.com and click on early voting.

Anyone not already registered, may fill out an application at the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office or pick up registration forms at any Pasadena ISD school. Members of the community may also register or check the status of registration online at www.votetexas.gov.
