When and where to vote around the lake in 2020
HB 1888, signed into law in June 2020, banned the use of mobile polling places for early voting in Texas. Travis County has for the past several years operated dozens of temporary polling places at various times during the state’s two-week early voting window, opening up temporary sites at colleges, rural community centers, HOA’s, grocery stores and senior living facilities. More than 28,000 people voted at those rotating polling sites last election, or nearly 6 percent of all Travis County votes cast during the 2018 midterm election.
Just be aware that those mobile polling places will not be available this election, and early voting won’t be as convenient as stopping off at Randall’s after shopping or your driving to your local HOA. Voting will be available at three (3) locations on Lake Travis (Bee Cave, Lago Vista and Lakeway). We wanted to be sure everyone on the lake is aware of the limited polling locals and the dates for early election voting. The lines are likely going to be long folks and you’re going to want to choose your date and time wisely.
