Last day to register to vote was October 5, 2020. For additional information, please click here or contact us at 713-274-8200.

Purpose:

Drive Thru Voting (DTV) was created in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic as a safer, socially-distant alternative to walk-in voting for all voters. Harris County is the first jurisdiction in Texas history to create this new method of voting at scale that allows any registered voter to cast their ballot without leaving the comfort of their vehicle.

Hours of Operation:

All DTV sites will be open during the same hours as walk-in voting for both Early Voting and Election Day.

Benefits of DTV:

  • Safer for voters naturally socially distanced within their vehicle
  • Secure using same voting machines and procedures as walk-in voting
  • Accessible to all voters
  • Efficient by serving 10-30 voters at all times at each site
  • Convenient for voters never having to leave their vehicle

Locations (10):

Find your closest DTV site at www.harrisvotes.com/locations?lang=en-US.

What to Expect:

  1. Look for the DTV signs located at the entrance of all 10 sites
  2. A greeter will offer optional hand sanitizer and face mask
  3. Turn off your engine and all electronics such as cell phones
  4. Display valid photo identification
  5. You will be handed a portable voting machine through your window to vote
  6. If there are multiple voters, each will take turns to vote
  7. Be courteous by remaining silent while each voter votes
  8. Receive your “I Voted” sticker, and we will see you next time!
