Election Day | May 1, 2021
On Election Day, voting will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tarrant County will utilize countywide “vote centers” for the election, joining over 55 Texas counties that have adopted the system. The “vote centers” give residents the option of casting their vote at any polling location countywide on Election Day, rather than being limited to a preassigned location based on their precinct.
Voters are required to present an acceptable form of photo identification to vote in Texas elections. The acceptable form of photo identification may be expired for up to four years. Voters who do not possess an acceptable form of photo identification and cannot obtain one of the forms of acceptable photo identification due to a reasonable impediment, may present a supporting form of identification and execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, noting the voter’s reasonable impediment to obtaining an acceptable form of photo identification, and stating that the voter is the same person on the presented supporting form of identification.

New Voting Requirement
Tarrant County has a few new changes coming your way. Last year, they started by adding electronic poll books to the check-in process, by doing this they eliminated a bottleneck in the check-in process. Last month they took the next step and bought new voting machines. Starting this November 2019, you will vote in a Hybrid system (HART Intercivic Verity Voting system v. 2.3.1): you will first come up to a touchscreen to make your choices, and when you are done, the machine will print out your choices on your ballot.
Starting November 2019, you will vote in a Hybrid system (HART Intercivic Verity Voting system v. 2.3.1): you will first come up to a touchscreen to make your choices, and when you are done, the machine will print out your choices on your ballot. You will then be able to review your ballot before you go to a separate machine, a scanner, to insert it and have it counted and deposited in the ballot box. From now on every voter in Tarrant County will all have a paper trail and will vote the same way, whether it’s during Early Voting or on Election Day. The last change is yet to be approved by the Secretary of State (SOS). Tarrant County has applied for the Vote Centers program the day after they purchased the voting machines. If the SOS approves their application, citizens will be able to vote at any location in the County on election day.
For more information on the new voting equipment, please visit the Tarrant County website, Facebook page (@TarrantCountyElections) or twitter (@tarrantelection). They are working very hard to make voting easier, more convenient and more accessible.
