SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – There’s something new in Bexar County on this election day that will make it more convenient for you to cast your ballot. For the first time on election day, you’ll be able to cast your ballot at any of the 280 plus polling locations.

“Any voter will be able to go to any poll, so they won’t have to rush home to vote in their own precinct,” said Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen, “which means that it’s the same model as early voting.”

If there’s a voting Center near where you work, shop or drop your child off at school, you can cast your ballot there.

The County also is using new voting machines that leave a paper trial. When you get to the poll, you’ll get a card with your precinct number. You put the card into the machine, use the touch screen to vote and your selections will be printed on the card. You must remember to put the card into a tabulator so that your votes will be recorded. If you leave the polling place with the card, your votes won’t count.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 pm.  Ten proposed state constitutional amendments are on the ballot, as well as some municipal elections and a school bond election.
