Chloe Williams, Web and Social Editor

The last day to cast your vote is on Election Day, Tue., Nov. 8, and the UTSA Main Campus is serving as a polling location. Therefore, it is crucial to make an Election Day plan and ensure you are informed on the ballot and the requirements for Election Day.

Voting at UTSA will occur in the H-E-B Student Union Bexar Room (HSU 1.102). The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 8. Anyone standing in line at 7 p.m. can still vote. Free parking is available for voters in the Ximenes Surface Lot. 

Curbside voting is also available at all polling locations in Bexar County. To access curbside voting at UTSA, call ahead to the Elections office at (210) 335-8683 and park in the designated area. 

UTSA Downtown is not serving as a polling location. Instead, the Downtown community can vote at the Bexar County Elections Office located at 1103 S. Frio St., 0.6 miles from campus. 

If you are a commuter to either campus, you may have a polling location closer to you. The Bexar County website has a list and map of all available polling locations. 

If you are voting via mail-in ballot, your ballot must be received by 7 p.m. (CST) on Election Day or by 5 p.m. (CST) the next business day if postmarked by 7 p.m. (CST) on Election Day according to Bexar County Elections.

On Election Day, come prepared to your polling location with acceptable photo identification; make sure to check your voter registration in advance to ensure you are registered in Bexar County. In addition, it is important to review the ballot beforehand and decide who you will be casting your vote for. A sample ballot is available here.
