Early Voting for the 2020 July Primary Runoffs Ends Friday Polls Open from 7 am to 10 pm


(Houston, TX) – The Harris County Clerk’s Office reminds citizens that Early Voting ends tomorrow, Friday, July 10. On the last day of Early Voting, all 57 voting centers throughout Harris County will remain open until 10 pm to allow voters with family and work obligations to cast their ballots and have their voices heard. You can visit HarrisVotes.com/WaitTimes to find the nearest voting center in your area and view wait times.
“I encourage all voters to take advantage of the last day of early in-person voting and extended hours as the safest way to cast your vote in person ahead of Election Day,” said Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins. “You can avoid long lines by using our Wait Time Tool on HarrisVotes.com and print your personal sample ballot that you can bring with you to the polls. We’ve taken every safety precaution to keep you safe while voting. If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, we encourage you to vote curbside and avoid entering a voting center.” Remember, if you voted in the March 3 Primary Election, you can only vote in that same party’s runoff
election. If you did not participate in the March Primary, you are able to vote in either primary runoff election. Winners in the primary runoff elections will move on to the General Election in November.
For the safety of all voters and poll workers, all voting centers have been set up to allow for social distancing. Poll workers have been provided with personal protective equipment including gloves, face masks, and shields. Sanitizing stations are set up at all polling sites, and voters are being
provided with finger covers to use while voting. Additional face masks are available for voters who do not have one.
As of July 8, 113,751 voters have cast their ballots. Daily unofficial results are posted on HarrisVotes.com. On July 14th, unofficial results will be posted as they come in after the polls close on Election Night.
