Elections

The Presidential, Congressional, and the City General Election will be held Nov. 3, 2020.

The Governor extended the early voting period to begin October 13-30. The Dallas County Elections Department has implemented procedures for all voters who wish to cast their ballot in person, during Early Voting or on Election Day. Dallas County Health Protocols for Voters can be reviewed on the Dallas County Elections website. 

Garland citizens may request a ballot by mail from Dallas County Elections (https://www.dallascountyvotes.org/wp-content/uploads/ABBM-5-15f-English-2.pdf). Current qualifications for voting by mail: age 65 or older, disabled, expected absence from the county, and confinement in jail. These voters may continue to return ballot(s) by U.S. mail.

Governor Abbott suspended Section 86.006(a-1) of the Texas Election Code.  This suspension now allows all voters who do not qualify under the above requirements to deliver a marked mail ballot in person to the early voting clerk’s office prior to and including on Election Day, November 3.  Ballots should be delivered to 1520 Round Table Drive, Dallas, TX 75247.

 The South Garland Branch Library at 4845 S. Broadway and the Richland College Garland Campus at 675 Walnut St. are polling locations for early voting from October 13-30.
