Gov. Abbott announces COVID-19 updates for the state.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation July 27 extending the early voting period for the Nov. 3 general election by nearly a week.
Under this proclamation, early voting by personal appearance will begin Oct. 13 and continue through Oct. 30. The proclamation also expands the period in which marked mail-in ballots may be delivered in person to the early voting clerk’s office, allowing such delivery prior to as well as on Election Day.
“As we respond to COVID-19, the State of Texas is focused on strategies that preserve Texans’ ability to vote in a way that also mitigates the spread of the virus,” Abbott said. “By extending the early voting period and expanding the period in which mail-in ballots can be hand-delivered, Texans will have greater flexibility to cast their ballots, while at the same time protecting themselves and others from COVID-19.”
