If you're voting tomorrow, on Election Day, you may be in for a wait. During early voting, an all-time-high number of registered voters cast their ballots,  and counties across the state saw record-breaking turnout. Plus, voter turnout is usually high during presidential elections.

Here are a few reminders before you get in line.

Know when and where to go.
Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Visit votetexas.gov to find your polling place and other helpful election info.

Don’t stop at the top.
Your ballot will have much more than just the presidency. Several federal and state races are down your ballot, and you have important local elections, like city council or school board races, that directly affect your community.

Check your marks.
If you use the straight-party option that allows Texans to vote for all of the candidates in one political party, be sure to review your entire ballot. Straight-ticket voting doesn’t apply to nonpartisan races you may have, like municipal elections or ballot propositions.
